Bob Jungels (Quick-Step Floors) – stage winner, best young rider
“It’s pretty good. At the moment it’s not so easy to realise but I’m super happy with this victory of course. I knew that I had good legs today; I was good in the climbs. Also, in the final climb I tried but it was a bit longer than I expected but then in the downhill I was in a good position. The sprint was perfect. I was on the wheel of [Dominico] Pozzovivo and I started the sprint in the perfect position.
“Actually, it was the first sprint I’ve won in a race like this. It’s great and a stage in the Giro is incredible and in front of these guys is incredible.”
Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) – race leader
“It was a very fast day, a high average [speed]. We had a breakaway in the front but a lot of teams were not happy with it and they kept on attacking. After 110km, the real breakaway went. It was crazy. It was a really hard final. There were a lot of favourites attacking but we stayed calm.
