Great time trial from Alejandro at the Vuelta

Great time trial from Alejandro at the Vuelta

He takes place 4 in Pontevedra

Alejandro took place 4 in the ITT which took place today on the occasion of the 11th stage of the Vuelta a España. He is 4th overall 58” behind still leader Joaquim Rodríguez.

Alejandro’s quotes:

“I had already stated this TT wasn’t bad for me, but even with that, taking 4th just behind Contador and Froome and find these good legs is something to be really happy. I think I did a sensational TT, even after not being able to find the best pace in the beginning. After that, I started to find myself better into the climb and kept going and going in the finale. We’re still into the fight, less than a minute behind the leadership even after the 55 seconds I lost at Valdezcaray. I don’t know if I’d be the race leader, but it’s not time to think about that: that won’t change, we must look towards the future and the important thing is that there’s still a long way to go with lots of good climbs. The stages coming up now must be the hardest, especially the Asturian ones. We must go day by day: tomorrow’s finish is good for me, but position will be essential and that will make it complicated. It’s being a really exciting Vuelta and we hope that strength stays at our side.”
