Speaking seconds after the stage finish, the stage winner and new race leader Tom Dumoulin said: “Looking at the results I’ve had a good race. But I was fighting with myself and I actually didn’t feel good. In the last time trials I did I kind of gave up and I was disappointed afterwards. So today I never gave up. 2.23 is a nice gap to have before the mountains but I lost several minutes in one day at the Vuelta so I know by experience that the Giro is far from over.”
