Alejandro takes two at the Mirador de Lobeira

Alejandro’s quotes (to listen to them, just download the under PDF):

The stage ended up being really hard. It’s sad I missed out on the victory because I had the legs and the finish suited me well. Actually, we didn’t mean to contest it, but the race development forces you to get up front – there’s Purito, who also came in 3rd. You can’t sit up, and it’s also important to get some bonus seconds. The team paid attention in all phases of the race and took me to the front wherever it was needed – a difficult day because of the wind required focus. We were alerted by the team radio there was some crash behind, and there was tension at the front indeed, but riding up-front, any crashes or gaps are easier to combat. It’s almost normal we came into this situation, because the passage through the bridge was crazy – that separator in the middle of the road was bonkers. Galicia is beautiful… but mostly on holday. This Vuelta will be really long and we must stay going day by day, but I’m feeling strong at the moment.”

Thanks to the time bonuses, Alejandro in now the 6th overall, 24” behind new leader Christopher Horner.
