The opening stage at Tirreno Adriatico began on the Tyrrhenian coast in Lido di Camaiore with a come from behind finish.
"It was a hard and long sprint, because I came from further back. But I had good speed in the end and I was able to find a gap at the right time and make it across the line first. Now the pressure is gone and we can see what's possible on the next few stages, and hopefully, we can take yet another win on a sprint stage. But we also have strong GC riders here, with Konrad and Majka, and so we're also hoping to perform well there too."
