Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Niccolò Bonifazio said: “I worked a lot during the winter but I didn’t have my occasion yet, however I was confident this morning that I could win today. I found a good position and we started the sprint very early. I’m so happy. My last win was almost 300 days ago, just before the Tour de France last year. I want to see now what happens. It’s an important victory”.

The Maglia Giallo Rossa Finn Fisher-Black said: “It was a nice feeling to ride with the leader’s jersey today. I never experienced that before. I was expecting Vincenzo Albanese to be in the sprint today and that’s something I can’t really control. It’ll be more challenging tomorrow”.
