Amador, 1:57 ahead of Roglic: "The idea was the stage"

The tico, fourth in the Giro in 2015 and eighth in 2016, made a good jump in the general thanks to the day's getaway to place in ninth position.

El Movistar put two runners on the flight after the montonera km 34, which caught Mikel Landa, was in a shock without consequences. José Joaquín Rojas finished third at the finish line of San Giovanni Rotondo and Andrey Amador, ninth. In the general, Rojas ascended to fourth place and Amador, to the ninth, with 1:57 advantage over Primoz Roglic. A good mattress to play your strategic card with Richard Carapaz and Mikel Landa. The tico was "happy" to get into the breakaway, but disappointed by the final result: " The idea was to achieve the triumph and we did not achieve it. Even so, we have a victory and we have the whole mountain ahead to put Mikel in the fight for the general. For my part, I felt good and I hope to respond when they need me. I do not think he will fight for the classification ".

Rojas, third in the finish, explained that he was faced with options to win and that he did not make the right decision by not following the wheel of Masnada and Conti:" I consider that Conti and Masnada were not so superior, although they attacked at the right moment and it was proved that with that first attack it served them. There I did not jump, a pity. I'm left with a bittersweet feeling, I had legs to aspire to triumph ".
