Andrea Vendrame: "Satisfied with this top 10
"I'm happy with the top 10 because the sprinters are very strong. Today, everyone had good legs because it was the first stage of the week. The organisms will be a bit more tired tomorrow so I hope to improve this place. I recovered well from the Strade Bianche. The Italian races are close to my heart, I want to get good results on the remaining stages."[/su_quote]
