Italy's Elia Viviani swapped his yellow jersey for the green one and is intent on fighting hard to keep the garment which befits a sprinter like him.

"The climbs were too hard for sprinters. The team worked all day but it was too hard for me. The green jersey is a new focus for me. The next days, I hope to keep this jersey. I think the whole day was difficult because of the rain and the cold and the climbs. It was a hard day. Now it'll be difficult but I have three results from the first stages and I can go in a breakaway for some points. I'll try."
