After his stage win yesterday, Zdenek had to start in the blue leaders jersey today. And our favorite enjoyed it, but he also did his part of the work for the team. With success, because Fernando Gaviria took care of the second stage win for Etixx-Quick Step.
“Gaviria is really fast”, Styby said after the finish. “What a sprint! It’s even more impressive when you know that he just came back from the world championship on the track where he won gold in the omnium. He is going to win many races in the future.”
Styby is still in the lead after the third stage with the same nine seconds as yesterday. He lost the jersey for the points classification, but the mountain jersey is still his. Tomorrow follows the longest stage of this Tirreno-Adriatico with 216 kilometers.
