The balance of the Tour de France
“It has been a very good place, you always want more, it is clear. We were fighting against very complete teams, very strong, you have to see it from that side as well. The feelings were good, it gives me confidence to continue working well, to now present myself in La Vuelta a España and do a good job”.
Objectives for La Vuelta
“Make the general of La Vuelta a Españaonce again we are convinced that the team’s riders are in the best shape and that we can count on them during La Vuelta a España and do the general again”.
Your opinion of the La Vuelta route?
“The team time trial is not our strong point, we will try to defend ourselves well. The other time trial that is in the middle of La Vuelta a España, is a time trial that is not too long and I can do it quite well, thinking about the general and the mountain stages, practically 10 stages with a high finish and they are good stages for me too”.
How is your renewal?
“We are close to signing with them, with the team, a team that has been growing, that has respected me and that loves me, listens to my opinions. We want to continue if there is the possibility. There is the manager and it is most likely.”
petitions to renew
“There are some requests we have, like a little to be able to bring more experienced riders, stronger, keep improving the team. We have already seen that today they pronounce the signing of (Clement) Champoussin, which is a runner coming from AG2R, a young rider but who already has experience and will surely help us for the team’s work and also to be able to win, he will surely be there contesting stages”.
The emergence of new figures in cycling
“We have also played our role, as everything has been times where we have to take advantage, we take advantage of our time. We do not rule out that we can continue in the fight, as we did this year, we continue to improve the team. You never know, we are still close by, anything can happen, we have the desire, we have the legs, we have been able to see it in this Tour de France. There are very strong youngsters with very strong teams, you have to respect and also know that this happens and that we are also there to keep trying, at least the podium, if anything can happen as we have said.”
