Monday is the first rest day at the Giro d’Italia The race resumes Tuesday with Stage 10.
Patrick Konrad (Bora-Hansgrohe) following Stage 9: “It was a very hard stage and at times really cold. Our main goal today was to finish sound and safe and avoid losing any time to the main GC contenders. Rafał and I crossed the finish line together in a good position so we can be satisfied with our day.
Jens Zemke Sports Director after Stage 9Patrick and Rafał not only survived today’s very difficult conditions but also managed to gain a few seconds in the overall standings. At the finish line the temperature was just 9ºC and it was raining we are almost in the middle of October and weather conditions are getting harsher. The front group made it to the finish although trimmed from eight to two riders because it was made of strong climbers. We didn’t take any initiative on the road today our only focus was to protect our guys and be alert if needed. We made sure they had everything they needed to go through this difficult day. We will have a well-deserved rest day tomorrow and I think that after this first part of the Giro we are still very close to our goals. We’re on the right track with our GC riders both of them in the top 10 after nine stages. Peter scored three second places so a stage victory is within reach and the battle for the points jersey isn’t over. We have a very hard final week and riders need to go through it. The only sad part is that we lost Patrick Gamper a very motivated young rider.Ruben Guerreiro (EF Pro Cycling) after his Stage 9 victory: Finally what a great satisfaction after so many second places! The team and I really deserved this victory. It was very difficult to get into the breakaway this morning and it’s extraordinary to win today.The pink jersey wearer João Almeida (Deceuninck-Quickstep) following Stage 9: The team did an incredible job they were perfect and it is thanks to my team-mates that now I still wear the Maglia Rosa. I’m also happy for my compatriot Guerreiro he deserves the winTicker and tracking LIVE here.
