Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner and Maglia Azzurra Enrico Zanoncello said: “I’m very happy. I had bookmarked this stage. After an eventful stage, it came down to a head to head with Matteo Malucelli. It’s been tight. I’m glad I won it. Fiorelli brought me onto Malucelli’s wheel and I managed to pass him. This is my first pro win in Europe and above all in Italy. Moreover this is the confirmation we were looking for. Let’s hope this win will convince my team to bring me to the Giro d’Italia”.
