The fifth stage of Tirreno-Adriatico was canceled. The organization decided to cancel the stage because of the snowfall. “A good but probably difficult decision that the organization had to make yesterday.”
“Today was the queen stage of Tirreno-Adriatico, with a uphill finish. But due the bad weather condition the stage was canceled. This is probably the first time they take such a decision before the start I think.”
“I would like to thank the organization of Tirreno because it had to be very difficult to cancel the stage of today. Thank you to think about our safety. We asked for the Extreme Weather Protocol Committee for some years, and now when we have it, it’s immediately useful.”
Tomorrow the will be another stage. “It’s a long stage of 210 kilometers. I hope I can keep the leader’s jersey and therefore I will fight”, said Styby. Tirreno-Adriatico will end on Tuesday with an individual time trial of 10 kilometers.
