"There is a time trial in which I can gain significant time, but not two minutes because they have proved to be in good shape. I have a great hope, I hope to do well."

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Rigoberto Uran is now 6th GC, +2'10", after a breakaway was able to avoid being caught and decided the 200km 10th Stage of the Giro d'Italia, from Civitanova Marche to Forlì, on Tuesday.


Nicola Boem (Bardiani - CSF Pro Team) won the stage after catching and going over the top of former break mate Alan Marangoni (Cannondale-Garmin), who had attacked with 1.3km remaining. Matteo Busato (Southeast) was 2nd, and Alessandro Malaguti (Nippo - Vini Fantini) was 3rd.


Uran finished with the peloton in 28th place, but moved up in the overall classification. Richie Porte (Team Sky) suffered a mechanical inside the final 5 kilometers, and finished 1'05" down as opposed to the Uran group, which crossed 18" down on the stage winner. He was then penalized 2 minutes for taking non-regulated assistance from a rider of another team. Tom Boonen finished slightly ahead of Uran, in 26th place.


"Have I lost important time? Yes, obviously I could not stay with them, but I still have the same desire when we get to Milan," Uran says in an interview with the Colombian Cycling Federation. "All three have shown great superiority and have been better. They are very good in the mountains.


"I wanted to do better but the road puts you in your place and my place is this one. I have a good preparation. I will stay quiet and wait until the end.


"There is a time trial in which I can gain significant time, but not two minutes because they have proved to be in good shape. I have a great hope, I hope to do well.


"I learned that you always have to be cautious. You can not relax until the last day. Everyone can have a bad day. You always have to be focused and not lose morale.


"Fortunately, I'm fine, my cold gone. I did not start the Giro in the best way, with that cold which I caught in Romandie. The legs have to respond."


Uran plans to do the Tour de France after the Giro.


"So far we only think about the Giro and then I will decide with the team what to do," he said.


Etixx - Quick-Step looks next to 153km Stage 11 on Wednesday, from Forlì to Imola. The stage is classified as medium mountain, with a lumpy profile. There are three categorized climbs (two Category 3, one Category 4), but the parcours descends into a flat finish.
