Giulio Ciccone: “I made my childhood dream come true”

July 11 th 2019 - 19:15

“The yellow jersey was my childhood dream. Today I made it come true. It’s a beautiful achievement. It’s hard to believe. My goal and our team’s goal was to win the stage. I was pissed off that I lost the stage win but when I realized that I had the yellow jersey, the feeling of anger passed straight away. It’s wonderful. The Giro was my first goal of the year but as I came out of it with a great condition, we decided with the team that I’d do the Tour as well, for experience at the age of 24. I started even better than we imagined. We have a strong team to defend the jersey even though flat stages at the Tour de France are hard as well.”
