“On such a steep climb at altitude you have to save everything" - Sepp Kuss gives insight on Primoz Roglic's late attack on stage 19 of the Giro d'Italia

Although he would have liked to have taken more, Primoz Roglic had to settle for a 3 seconds gain on Geraint Thomas, gapping the Welshman in the final 100m. According to Sepp Kuss, a last-minute attack was the sensible play.

“It was a good attack. We knew that an early attack would not get very far. It was cold and really, really hard,” the Jumbo-Visma super domestique revealed in a post-stage interview with Eurosport. “If I now look at the differences on this stage, they are more because someone always fell back. Could we have done more this stage? We did our best every day.”

With it all coming down to the final individual time-trial, Roglic trails Thomas by just 26 seconds meaning it is still all to play for. "Now it's up to Roglic tomorrow," Kuss concludes. “I think it will be really fun.”
