Alejandro broke away in Tour stage 11

Alejandro went with a breakaway in Tour stage 11

Alejandro’s quotes after he crossed the finish:

“It was a really hard stage, one of those I have suffered the most on a bike. We saved almost 5.000 meters of drop in just 148 kilometers, which is infamous. We knew it was a stage where the break could stay away until the finish and we searched for it from the very start. I attacked from behind at the Madeleine to reach the split ahead and after that, we went on full steam, all day. The break was the good one, but Sky was so strong behind that the gap didn’t got big. We never reached four minutes and that, in such a stage, means nothing. At the Croix-de-Fer, I don’t know if I paid from my effort, riding to the limit all day. The goal is clearly searching for the stages, but should the leader’s squad stay within this line, it will be really hard. We’ll have to keep trying, the team fought for it until the end today.”
