Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) has won Stage 2 of the 107th Giro d’Italia, the 161km long San Francesco al Campo-Santuario di Oropa (Biella). Daniel Felipe Martinez (Bora – Hansgrohe) and Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) finished second and third respectively.

Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) becomes the new Maglia Rosa.

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner and new Maglia Rosa Tadej Pogacar said:

“It’s a dream coming true, an amazing victory. After I had won at the Vuelta and the Tour, I made it to win a stage in all the Grand Tours. It’s not something that everybody has and it’s something big in cycling.

I didn’t really get scared by the incident I had in town. It happened after a flat tyre because I wanted to stop before the corner. It wasn’t serious and the team brought me back quickly.

I didn’t know the climb well but I think we had a good plan. I sped up after the last pull by Rafal Majka. I didn’t mind the time gap at the end. The dream was to take the Maglia Rosa and now I can relax for a few days”.
