Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Magnus Cort Nielsen said: “I’m extremely happy to complete my trilogy, winning a stage of the Giro d’Italia after the Tour de France and La Vuelta. But it’s been one of the hardest days I’ve spent on the bike. Firstly I had to get back to the front. Then my radio wasn’t working because of the rain so I was never sure where the chasing peloton was. But we kept pushing hard. It was worth it. It’s hard to believe that it happened though.”

The Maglia Rosa Geraint Thomas said: “It was nice but obviously not ideal conditions to be leading the Giro. It was a solid day with lots of attacking. It was pretty cold on top of the hill and crazy in the descent. I’m happy with getting through this stage alright. In this race anything can happen, especially with the weather.”
