Magnus Cort Nielsen (EF Pro Cycling): “I think I timed my sprint pretty well. I came into the last corner not too far to the front. I was looking for an opening and I found it with about 200m to go, maybe a bit less. From there, I just went with everything I had. Starting today, I didn’t dream about winning this stage. I thought it would be a more reduced bunch in the end. Suddenly I could see my chance in the first cat climb. When I was in that reduced group, I knew there weren’t many guys faster than me. Cavagna was still in the front but luckily teams wanted to bring him back for the sprint. I think it’s been difficult for everyone this year. But it means a lot that I come back and win. I was coming into a good form when we started racing again after the long break but then I got corona myself and I was out. I’ve only trained for three weeks before coming here and it’s very nice to get a victory.”
