peaking after the stage Bauhaus said, “It feels really good. My shape is quite good. I’m super happy that everything worked out today. Also on stage 2, my sprinting was quite good [5th]. At the Giro d’Italia, I came close to the podium twice. Now with the support of the team, I take the biggest win of my career so far. Today I felt I had good legs from the beginning of the stage so I was confident for the sprint. My legs were good enough to take them [Alexander Kristoff and Arnaud Démare] on.”
