Giulio Ciccone: “It’s been exceptional to ride in yellow”

“It was a very hard stage. We did the maximum. I want to thank my team-mates. It was a stage for Alaphilippe. It’s fair enough that he got the yellow jersey back. He did it with great determination. I was at the limit when he attacked. I hanged on all day. I’m happy with my condition. To ride a stage like this at the front means I’m going well. I’m satisfied with the way I handled the situation. It’s been something exceptional to have the opportunity to wear the yellow jersey for two days. We’ll see in the coming days, who knows, if there’s a way to create another surprise.”
