“Don’t beat that record now, huh?” “Cav” joked as he nudged Pogacar.

“No, no, don’t worry, you’ll have it for a long time”replied the Slovenian, who commented on the fall at the end, which he was able to overcome without problems.

“We were in the peloton and the riders ahead braked and we touched wheels and shoulders, but fortunately I escaped the fall. I reacted instinctively and was very lucky to avoid it. It’s a natural element of flat stages,” he said at the finish.

Pogacar, who once again “enjoyed wearing the yellow jersey”, said he had overcome a “delicate” stage.

“The most interesting thing is that I was able to reach the finish line in complete safety on a tricky stage. It was less stressful than Turin, as things were relatively calm up front,” he said.
