Pello Bilbao: “After the Giro, to win here is unbelievable”

June 9 th 2018 - 15:30


“It’s really amazing. Yesterday, I had a bad day. I paid for my efforts from the Giro. I was completely done, I had no energy left, but today I felt good legs. I wanted to try something for the team who believed in me for overall. The rhythm of the breakaway was much better for me. It went perfect in the last climb. I had a small gap but I had to stay ahead before the last 5km. I knew it would be easier after that point. I managed to stay away. It’s unbelievable for me. It’s difficult to maintain a good condition after the Giro, especially after this very hard Giro but I still had the motivation and support to go for a stage win.”
