Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers): “I think the rest was welcome, we needed it, and this stage was good to get the legs going again. I would like [to attack Roglic]. I have nothing to lose, I don't care to be fifth or tenth in the overall, but you need to have legs. In the Giro I was attacking from afar even as the leader, which shouldn't be done, but I felt strong and I like to ride like that. Let's see how I feel, if I feel good I'll move. We have a very strong team. Yates is also very well, I see him very strong, the problem is that we have lost two riders. Pavel [Sivakov], Dylan [van Baarle] and [Salvatore] Puccio are doing a very good job to carry us, I don't know if they are going to be at their best tomorrow. But let's try it.”
