Still third overall
Alejandro shook the field into final 25km attacking in the descent and forcing favorites’ teams to move up. One more time Alejandro showed his class and qualities, this time on the occasion of the fourth stage of the Vuelta a España -164km from Mairena del Alcor to Córdoba.
“I went ahead so the rest of our rivals could get a bit nervous and had to push behind, but I knew it was very difficult to get anywhere. I didn’t feel bad yesterday, just a bit sore after the crash, but as the blow cooled down I could see I had recovered well, and my legs did pretty fine today. We’ll see how we ride in the upcoming days – our tactics we keep it to ourselves; otherwise we will be giving clues to our rivals.”
Tomorrow: stage 5: Priego de Córdoba – Ronda (180 km)
