- Marcel Kittel after his Stage 6 victory had this to say in the post-race press conference: "This second stage victory isn’t necessarily better than the first one, which was my first pro win in Italy, so it was special. Today’s win is also special because it’s the birthday of Nathan Haas and it wasn’t an easy stage at all. I’m proud of the team. Katusha-Alpecin has a big potential in leadout with Rick Zabel and Marco Haller. With rouleurs like Alex Dowsett and Tony Martin, we can combine things really well. Today’s victory will keep everyone in the team motivated."
