Mountains are back at the Vuelta

Mountains are back at the Vuelta

Alejandro fifth overall 21” behind Italian Nibali

Three important stages in Andalucía!

This is what Alejandro thinks about those hard stages:

“Now it’s time for the three consecutive mountain-top finishes, three important days – I don’t know the Peñas Blancas climb from tomorrow, but I’ve been told about it. The first part has some hard slopes and the final 6 or 7 kilometers are at about 7%. We’ll see how we feel, because everything is going alright until now and I’m really willing to do well. There could be some time gaps at Valdepeñas de Jaén Sunday, of course, but they should be minimal. It will be important to get into good position coming into the final slope. Monday’s stage is one I know really well and is hard, both Monachil and Haza Llana climbs. It will be the third consecutive mountain-top finish and legs will hurt. I hope to get well to all three because I’m feeling strong and the team is supporting me to perfection.”
