Post-stage quotes

By John Trevorrow in Pistoia

Tom Danielson (Discovery Channel, 53rd at 1'49)

Tom Danielson lost contact on the steep Sammomme climb with 17 km to go, but came to the finish in a big group, 1'29 behind the Cunego/Simoni group. "Yeah it was ok," Danielson told Cyclingnews at the finish. "Paolo made the front group and that was the main objective. I had a pain in the knee. As soon as I saw Paolo was OK, I rode in easy."

Brett Lancaster (Panaria, 88th at 9'05)

There was to be no "home" win for Pistoia-based Brett Lancaster today. "No way," he said. "But I felt good and I was doing my bit towards the end of the race. I feel good for the time trial tomorrow."
