And tomorrow, the Angliru!

And tomorrow, the Angliru!

Alejandro takes 6 at the Narranco

Rodríguez makes his explosivity count atop the Naranco; closes in on Alejandro, still in 3rd overall -1.06 behind new leader Horner before decisive climb of L’Angliru.
Alejandro’s quotes (audio available below):

“You always want to win, but there isn’t much energy left into the tank. Purito played his cards really well, and when he jumped, all the rivals looked at me, put all pressure on me to chase and I couldn’t do much more. We have gone through very hard days in this Vuelta, always full gas – we’re feeling quite tired at the moment. There’s only one decisive day left before we get to Madrid. Angliru is a demanding climb where the only strategy is putting your own pace and forgetting about your rivals. Tomorrow’s weather won’t be what I’d have liked, but we will do the best we can. Horner is looking really strong and will be the big favourite tomorrow; despite being a short gap, Nibali lost some more terrain on us two and Purito – that makes me consider Horner the strongest. The team was phenomenal once again.”
