Quotes

Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner and first Maglia Azzurra Wout van Aert, said: “I started my sprint at the right moment and I managed to keep my speed until the finish. I didn’t really expect to win today in such a fast sprint against Caleb Ewan. I was thinking of taking some time bonuses. I’m really happy and proud to finish off the work of the team.
