Mexican cyclist Lizbeth Yareli Salazar Vázquez had said that she did not expect to win, as it was a mountainous stage and she is not good at mountains, being a track specialist. Also, for her it was 2:30 in the night, Mexican time. However, she was very happy to participate, as the money raised will go to the Italian Red Cross to fight the coronavirus crisis.
