– We came here with the young leader, who is riding his first year in professional cycling. We didn’t want to make too much pressure to him, as it was important to see how he feels day by day. Finally, we can be satisfied with his results. He did a very active race - every stage always in the front among other leaders, finally, finished in Top 5 in youth classification. The team also made a good job, supporting him during all this week, – summarized the race sports director Giuseppe Martinelli.
