Mitchelton-Scott's Simon Yates has finished the 17th stage of the Giro d'Italia still wearing the Pink Jersey but regretting that the day was so fast and tiring.

The General Classification contenders expected a quiet day ahead of the next mountain stage but it showed to be impossible, judging from the speed of the peloton. "Every day has been difficult until now," commented Yates.

"Today we had a very fast day and a bit spicy with the rain at the final."

The rider is feeling good ahead of the next challenges of the last week but thinks days like today could affect the results of what is to come. "There's no easy day at the Giro," the Briton explained.

"This was another hard one and it could have some impact on the coming mountain stages. I heard about splits in the bunch but I never knew who was caught behind. I hope everyone is tired because I'm tired."
