Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner Einer Augusto Rubio said: “A big day that I was looking for by working very hard. It’s been difficult with the bad weather. But I had to keep going. I knew that Pinot was very strong. I had to finish with him and play it well tactically. It will take time for me to realise that I won a stage of the Giro d’Italia. I didn’t believe I’d do it.”
