Italy's Diego Ulissi (Lampre - Merida) won stage seven of the 2015 Giro d'Italia, from Grosseto to Fiuggi (264km). Alberto Contador (Tinkoff - Saxo) retains the Maglia Rosa of General Classification leader.
The stage winner, Diego Ulissi, said:
There are some big sprinters here, so I knew I wasn't the number 1 favourite today, but I had great legs. I went early because I was afraid of getting caught from behind. This is a special win for me after the difficult year I've had, and I want to thank my family - my wife, my parents and my in-laws - and also my friends for all their support.
The Maglia Rosa, Alberto Contador, said:
It was a hard day for me but I'm happy because I got through it. After three and a half or four hours, I didn't know what to do with my arm, but I hope and trust that, as the days past, it will improve. Tomorrow is a stage that I was looking forward too. Now it's going to be hard for me, and I expect attacks. Now I'm just thinking of resting and putting ice on my shoulder. Then we'll see.
