From the Finish Line

“I’m really happy with the performance of the team and for myself, I can say I’m quite satisfied. Tirreno-Adriatico is a beautiful race, I really like racing here in Italy. Yesterday we tried everything, the boys rode super well, so there’s no reason to be disappointed. ” Jai Hindley

 

“We came to the race with a strong team, some of the guys had just returned from altitude so we knew the shape would be good. With Vingegaard on the start line, the realistic goal was to take a podium result - and we achieved that. We weren’t able to win a stage, but with four sprint stages and only two days in the mountains this year, it was pretty clear that this wouldn’t be an easy task. I’m very proud of how they raced and committed themselves. They built up trust and confidence, so I can be really happy as a Sports Director.“ Enrico Gasparotto, Sports Director
