At the end of the last stage of the pink race, Jonathan Milan broke his bike chain, just as he passed a stretch of the path where there were the typical Roman stones. Milan struggled to come back and despite the help of his teammates, he was unable to cross the finish line first in Rome.

«I tried to get back as quickly as possible, but the group was really strong. The guys had supported me a lot until the moment the chain broke, they were very good in trying to get me back into the top positions, but I couldn’t win.”

Jonathan Milan finishes this Giro d’Italia with the cyclamen jersey and for him, this is the second time he has won the points classification of the race.

«When I arrived on the straight I tried to give my best, but Merlier anticipated before the corner and made the perfect sprint and I wasn’t able to rejoin. When we were on the cobblestones it was difficult to really push and make a difference, but it was a really good sprint.”

The Friulian concluded the Giro with 3 stage victories and 4 second places and for this reason, he can now be considered one of the best sprinters in the world.

«I have achieved good results, in short one is committed to doing one’s job. The team does a lot, achieving these results is not easy, but when you have a team that guides you and believes in you, the result always comes.” This is the second time for Milan that they have won the cyclamen shirt and for him, this success must be shared with the entire team. «It’s the second time I’ve taken the cyclamen shirt and it means a lot to me and to all the boys. There is an important team effort behind it and it really means a lot to us. The team truly did a magnificent job and this is a victory to share with everyone, without exception.”

For the Lidl-Trek sprinter, there will now be a few days of rest and a party with friends and relatives, then work will begin for the Paris Olympics, an important event, where Milan wants to do well. «Soon I have to start looking at a goal called Paris, but first I have to think about recovering for a moment from this Giro, more mentally than physically. I will have a retreat in Livigno with the national team at altitude and then training for the track will begin. In these Olympics I want to do well and I will prepare hard to get the result.”
