« We came to this Giro with the aim to win a stage, knowing that if I succeeded, I would enter cycling history. After several top five finishes, I became the first black African to win a Grand Tour stage! I'm so grateful for the support of my teammates, the staff, my family, all people encouraging me! They are there for me every day, this victory belongs to them. My teammates all rode in the front for me. Barnabás Peák, Loïc Vliegen, Aimé De Gendt, Rein Taaramäe, Lorenzo Rota and even our GC riders Jan Hirt and Domenico Pozzovivo gave everything to give me the opportunity to take this win. In the final 600 meter, Domenico shouted that I had to follow him. He launched me perfectly. This victory makes me so happy! » - Biniam Girmay Hailu.
