Bad luck in Liège-Bastogne-Liège

“When things go out this way, you can’t do anything. I didn’t have the best legs at Amstel and Flèche, but the sensations today were good. Just when entering La Redoute, Voeckler crashed, I was behind him and couldn’t avoid crashing myself. I got up fast, and came back to the group, but then I saw I had broken my back gearing. I had to stop and wait for Madrazo, who gave me his bike because the team cars were really far behind. We weren’t really far from the main group after that, but at a cross, the motorbikes before us took a wrong way. We could have bridged the gap, who knows, but our chances were already over, because I was riding with Ángel’s bike, which was much smaller than mine. It’s a bummer: things didn’t go well this week, but I’m really happy about this first part of the year. Now it’s time to rest for some days and start training after that to get prepared for the second part of the season, with the Tour as the main goal.” , told Alejandro after the race
