Jungels, the 2010 Junior World Time Trial Champion, is very happy with the win: "I felt already this morning that I had good legs. I did a good warm-up and I followed behind Pit Schlechter from the race car. We had done a recon of the parcours last week and I knew what to expect. It wasn't a very technical parcours, but more of a parcours where you really open up the motor. I'm very happy that it turned out as I was hoping for."
Jungels was 46 seconds behind his team mate Julian Kern, who won the Queen Stage of the Flèche du Sud yesterday. "I knew from the first split time that I was going really well. I was 40 seconds faster than Julian there, so it was looking good. I controlled, and kept the pace high until the finish line."
Julian Kern, who was the last to leave the start house, rode the eleventh time today, finishing just over a minute behind Jungels. He is now in second place in the GC.
Adriano Baffi: "We did very well so far in this race. And what Bob showed today was very impressive. He has a lot of quality. But not only Bob: we had four riders in the top eleven, so that proves that we have a strong team here. Tomorrow is 180 km long and we'll do all we can to defend our first and second position overall."
"It's great to be on the road with these guys. We have a really ambiance and I hope we can win this race."
