Matteo Trentin: “I’m very happy about my climbing”

July 18 th 2019 - 17:59

“It was a very good day out there. We did great tactics as Simon Yates was at the head of the race and I was on the second group and could have countered if necessary. In order to have a chance of making it to the summit with the head of the race, I needed to anticipate the move of the big climbers. That’s why attacked. I didn’t get that much of a gap, only 30 seconds. I am very happy about my climbing today, as only three riders overtook me. Riding the GC doesn’t mean you can go for stages. We targeted a few of them and for now we got two victories. It’s going really well. There are still a couple of chances of getting another stage win. But, on the rest, it will be all about Adam.”
