Jumbo Visma: We didn’t expect that



Sepp Kuss helped limit the loss

Was it just a bad day or the true state of Primož Roglič? We will get the answer from Thursday to Saturday in two mountain stages and a time trial, which will give the final winner of the Giro. In Jumbu Visma, they admit that they got a slap in the face, but the last km gives them hope.

It’s not something we expected before today’s stage, but it is what it is. However, there is still a long way to go before the end of the race, there are two more difficult stages on Thursday and Friday. Sepp Kuss did an excellent job, I think that without him, Primož’s gap would have been a little bigger. Primož was also very strong in the last kilometer and with the help of Sepp he limited the loss,” he said after the 16th stage, on which Primož Roglič lost 25 seconds to Thomas Geraint and Joao Almeida Marc Reefsports director of Jumba Visma.

The heroes of the stage were of course satisfied. “To was a very difficult day with many climbs. I’m happy with the outcome. I found myself ahead of Almeida, but he was better in the sprint. He didn’t surprise me, I know he’s a great rider and a great competitor in the fight for the pink jersey,” he said immediately after the stage Thomas.

This victory is special, it’s a dream come true. I felt good and the team was awesome. We worked together with Thomas to gain seconds before Roglič, but my main goal was to win the stage. I try to improve day by day to become the best version of myself,” he said Almeida.
