Vasto>L’Aquila, 185km. Hilly.
“It wasn’t easy but I didn’t want to abandon this Giro – says Damiano Caruso – I don’t have fever anymore and this is great news. I’m still a bit weak and that’s why today, agree with the SD, I chose to save energy so I could recover faster”.
“The other day I started with a fever at 39 ° and with terrible feelings. I congratulate myself because I had the strength to react and I am ready to give my contribution to the Team. In these two stages, the only goal was to arrive and the unique way was to start motivated. I was aware that if I surrendered I would be even worse. ”
Stage 7 was fast and furious right from the beginning with a very high pace. After the halfway point finally at 12 riders break had space to go. The Spaniard Pello Bilbao won the race in L’Aquila, while the Italian Valerio Conti kept the pink jersey.
