After this group was caught, Luis Leon Sanchez continued trying more and more. In the final of the day it did not work, but anyway, it was a very solid race for the rider of Astana Pro Team.
- I can’t say I feel bad, contrariwise, I feel quite good and I am improving day by day. But, of course, I am still missing some racing rhythm if we compare with the riders, who came here after the Vuelta and the Worlds. I was good today and was able to try something, but in the last part of the distance I just could not follow the best riders, who are in great shape right now. Anyway, I am looking forward to the next races here in Italy and, especially, to the Tour of Guangxi in China, - said Luis Leon Sanchez.
An attack of a few riders on the last climb of the day create a group of leaders, who played the race victory in a sprint, won by the Latvian rider Toms Skujiņš.
