Filippo Ganna rocketed through The Hague to take an impressive win in the 2019 BinckBank Tour time-trial. The Italian national time-trial champion was happy to show his Italian tricolour jersey with a convincing win.
"I've been trying to win in my national jersey for a while, but finally it happened," Ganna said. "It's nice. The BinckBank Tour is not a small race."
The Italian from Team Ineos pointed out the wind was a crucial factor.
"It was really hard when I started and in the second part it was headwind. I am happy to take the win. I expected to suffer more with my crash from two days ago, but fortunately it was not so bad and I saved myself for today. The last few days our team didn't manage to win, but now we did it."
