Giro Stage 6: Heartbreak for the breakaway duo


Stage 6: The beauty of the Almalfi coast. 

"This is what we came for. It was pretty close in the end and it was not easy to catch the front duo in time. I feel sorry for those guys in the breakaway because they worked really hard today. Gaviria did a really strong sprint and it wasn't easy to catch him."

-Mads Pedersen

Heartbreak for the breakaway duo

"I dreamt of this victory for many years now. I've been second, third, and fourth in a stage and it would have been amazing to add a stage victory as well but it wasn't to be today. We just gave it everything. We needed 10 more seconds and that was it. We gave it everything. We actually got further than we maybe should have. Alessandro was really strong and I tried to go for turns with him all the way to the finish. We put up a good fight but we were just a few hundred meters short."

-Simon Clarke
