A nice gift for the Italian Mirco Maestri (Polti-Kometa). The Italian, who accompanied Julian Alaphilippe (Soudal Quick-Step) during their breakaway on the 12th stage of the Giro 2024, won by the Frenchman, was full of praise for the double world champion.

“Alaphilippe, with Sagan, is the rider I respect the most”

“It was the hardest and most beautiful day of my life. Julian Alaphilippe, with Peter Sagan, is the rider I respect the most. Spending a day out front with him was wonderful. I also feel like I won”he declared.

Dropped by Alaphilippe a few kilometers from the finish, the Frenchman has not forgotten the collaboration with the transalpine runner. The double French world champion gave him a nice gift, before the start of the 15th stage this Sunday, May 19.

Julian Alaphilippe came to hand-deliver his jersey to Micro Maestri. A lovely moment of complicity which did not fail to put a smile on the Italian’s face.
