Regarding Pozzovivo's victory yesterday Giuseppe Martinelli, team manager of Astana, said, "Surely, he is one more rider with whom we have to deal with. If we don't drop him before the mountains he becomes the most dangerous of all." Note: Pozzovivo is now 13th on GC at 55".
Danilo Di Luca considers Michele Scarponi a step above all others saying, "Even from what we saw in Rocca di Cambio, I think the favorite is Scarponi for the victory. I see him motivated with a strong team behind him. He is determined to win the Giro, this time on the road."
