And here is my write-up of the podium finishers' reactions:
Pieters: I have been waiting for a big victory for a long time

It's true that it's mostly those 4-6 teams battling for victory. But at least that's more than the total #rabofem domination of years past.
And as Hosking said (though it didn't make it into that article), Alé Cipollini have made it from a small Italian team to an international squad that is definitely a challenger. In time, other teams will reach that level too.

Random observation:
Both here and at Strade Bianche, the second- and third-placed riders were more verbose in their post-race interviews than the actual winners.
I think that some of this has to do with language - though Longo Borghini and Niewiadoma aren't native English speakers, Ryan and Hosking are. And both ELB and Kasia race on teams where English is the main language. But I would have thought that with Dideriksen, Majerus, Deignan, Guarnier etc. the same would be true for Boels.
