Pascal Ackermann said in the press conference: “It’s never easy to have a good sprint, but I saw a gap as we already had a high speed. It was a big surprise for the other sprinters that I went so early, but we did everything right. We spoke with my lead out man Rudi[ger Selig]. He asked me what train I wanted and I replied ‘I just trust you’. So we were looking for each other, not the other sprinters. At this time of the year, you never know who is in good shape, and it happens that everybody is in good shape. We tried something different today and it was good. Last year, the Giro d’Italia was the first big goal of my career. Winning the first sprint has been a big step for my head. It gave me a lot of confidence. This year, we’ll try and win some sprints and we’ll have two possibilities for winning them with Peter [Sagan]. Maybe we can create some surprises. I’m looking forward to the Giro again.”
