It's been 554 days since the last victory in the 2019 Tour of Slovakia and a huge relief for Elia Viviani.
"The victory is finally here! The team did a very good job to take me perfectly to the sprint. Emmanuel (Morin) and Saba (Sabatini) were very involved at the end. And I'm happy that I did a good sprint afterwards. Now I hope to keep this confidence for the next races and continue with the same motivation. I thank the whole team.
We will continue like this, I am confident. If the problem was, until then, not to have broken the ice yet, it is done and we must now continue in the same direction. The goal is not to wait months to win again."
