QUOTES

Luca Pacioni “I’m not a pure sprinter but I like to try my chances in days like these ones. I knew well the final and I wasn’t worried by all these turns. My team mates did a great job and especially Zhupa was excellent at the last km.”

Tomas Gil “Today the only goal was to arrive at the sprint and so we decided to don’t go in the breakaway. The team has worked well and we are very happy. This win gives a push to the riders and the staff, we are enjoying ourselves and we are learning how to win and this is very important”
