Marc Hirschi delighted by "special" victory at Giro dell’Appennino

Edging out Cristian Rodriguez of Team Arkea-Samsic, Marc Hirschi secured himself a third win of what has been a fruitful 2023.

"It’s very special to take the win today," the 24-year-old Swiss told the official website of the UAE Team Emirates. After taking victory at the Tour de Hongrie, Hirschi continued his impressive form. "After Hungary I took it quite easy and rested because for a race like today it’s important to arrive as fresh as possible and trust my good form from the previous races."

"The last climb was very difficult and I had a big chase to catch Rodriguez," Hirschi continues. "Crossing the line was spectacular, there are a lot of people here and a good atmosphere.”

The victory of the Swiss rider now means that the UAE Team Emirates set-up have taken a grand total of 30 wins so far this year.
