AGAINST WORLD-CLASS SPRINTERS, THE ITALIAN WON HIS FIRST VICTORY FOR COFIDIS, THE TEAM'S 17TH THIS SEASON.
"This victory is a great relief. I have often been very close to victory, at the Tour de France, at the Giro and on several occasions this year. We knew we had some good cards to play with Bryan, especially today. When we saw that he was blocked in the final, Piet Allegaert sacrificed himself to be my pilot fish and I gave everything for the victory. This victory fills me with joy: the year was not easy, I had to deal with personal problems and I had to fight to bounce back. I am so proud to offer this new victory to the team." .
