Between my coach, myself and the team, we've decided not going to look at an overall result; it's more about trying to look at potential weaknesses and how to resolve them.
Whether I'm one hour behind or not, I'm still going to race as if I'm trying to win. Mentally it's the best way.
Not what he said after stage 2.
Now with the pink jersey in the bag, the next question is how Dennis sees the rest of the race play out, regarding his own GC ambitions, given his early lead.
"The first thing is to try and keep the lead tomorrow [stage 3], so I can wear it in Italy," Dennis said later. "I'm sure at some stage I will lose it, but I won't stop fighting for it until we finish in Rome."
Which makes it plain he is very much in the GC hunt.
