Speaking seconds after the race finish, the winner said: “Thanks to the team I achieved this magnificent victory here today despite the loss of Michele Scarponi who crashed – I dedicate this achievement to him. Diego Rosa, who was also involved in the crash, did a tremendous job for me as well as Dario Cataldo in bringing back the breakaway. We always speak during the race, that enabled us to change tactic on the way… it was smart to try to go away before the final ascent. I didn’t expect to win today. It’s beautiful“.
