“Unfortunately even today the sprint hasn’t gone as I hoped to – explained Andrea Guardini after the finish – I took the Van Poppel wheel (winner of the second stage) but nonetheless, it was not the right one and on the other side Degenkolb and Kristoff they did a better sprint.”
“I was focused on today stage as the one the most suitable to me so I cannot be satisfied by my performance – explained Guardini - despite this I close this beautiful Artic Race of Norway with a good condition and I'm pretty confident for the next races!”
