Sprint expected third victory of Elia Viviani, but the mood of the Italians managed to spoil Sprinter "BORA - hansgrohe", Sam Bennett, who won his debut victory at the Grand tour.

As Sam Bewley comments when interviewed after following the end of the stage, "it's a long way to go to Rome, but things are looking good" for the team.
