cyclingnews.com talked to today's stage winner Servais Knaven after the stage:
With quick finishers like Commesso, Van Bon and Bossoni in the breakaway, Servais had to come up with a plan, and it was not for the light hearted. "Today's stage was how I like them to be, flat with an early break. Towards the end the breakaway group went silent, and we all started to think about how we would ride at the end. Needless to say, I didn't want to sprint for it, and I didn't want to risk that someone else attacked before me either, and therefore I jumped with 18 kilometres to go. Maybe it seemed a little bit too early, and I admit that it was a risky move, but I felt really good. I was able to ride at 50 kph and the others just couldn't do that."
