Stage winner riding his fifth Grand Tour in a row

Adam Hansen (Lotto Belisol) is riding his twelfth Grand Tour and fifth in a row at the Giro d'Italia. The 32-year-old capped off the opening week of racing with his first-ever stage win in a three-week epic and in this exclusive video talks to Cyclingnews about his triumph.

"I like racing every day," he says. "It seems a lot of people get tired and I sort of perform better in the second and third week so it's well-suited for me."

The Giro was the first Grand Tour that Hansen tackled back in 2007 with T-Mobile and so, it's a race that holds special significance to the Australian.
