NANS PETERS: "This is huge

"This is huge. I don't realize it yet. I'm winning my first pro race in a major Tour. It's magical. Eight of us started in a GPM. I found myself with some big names and I didn't get carried away. I tried to stay fresh for the last few kilometers. I really focused on the finish. I only attacked once with 15 km to go and I managed my effort well. With 1.5 km to go, I knew it was good. In the earpiece, I could hear Arturas telling me that we couldn't see anyone behind. This allows us to continue on a good note."[/su_quote] [su_row][su_column size="1/2"][/su_column] [su_quote cite="ARTURAS KASPUTIS"]

ARTURAS KASPUTIS: "A beautiful emotion

"I had a great day. Nans was in a breakaway of champions and he behaved like a champion. He managed his race well, he didn't panic and he attacked at the right time. We recognized the final stage after the Tour of the Alps, he knew how to manage his lead. It's been eight years since we won a Giro stage. It's a great feeling."[/su_quote]
