13 April 2023

The oldest rider on the start line at the Giro di Sicilia proved once again that ‘age ain’t nuthin’ but a number’ with 38-year-old Peter Kusztor up here with the leaders on stage three.

Head sports director Massimo Podenzana:

“We saw so much good teamwork from the guys today, I’m very pleased with how they rode. Always together as a group and working to look after Peter until the final.”

“It was always going to be tough up the last ramp to the finish with the sharp turns, but Peter did very well to keep battling at the front of the group and was very close to the top 20.”

Peter Kusztor:

“The guys were so good today! We were always together. Sam rode himself into the ground taking the wind early on, then Hamish going into the final was pulling the whole peloton at one point.”

“I gave it everything I had in the final and that was the best I had. The group were chasing hard to try and bring back the guy from Tudor, but he managed to stay away so chapeau to him. I’m a little bit disappointed to not make it into the top 20, but c’est la vie and we have a massive day coming up tomorrow for the final stage.”
