Alejandro fought until the end

3rd at the top of the Angliru as well as overall

Squeezing his regularity in all kinds of mountains to his best in the country’s hardest climb, Alejandro took a decisive step to the overall podium of the 2013 Vuelta a España in Madrid and secured the points classification.

Alejandro’ s quotes (audio available below):

“I gave everything that I had and I’m satisfied with myself. We must congratulate Horner after such a great effort – we saw he was the strongest in the race once again, he was phenomenal. Nibali was great, too – he was brave and made us struggle a lot. I think all four main contenders did really well. I knew I’d be climbing well on my pace, but I needed one of my rivals to crack in order to progress in the overall. That didn’t happen and that’s why I’m happy with this third place. It’s yet another podium overall in the Vuelta a España, and despite not winning a stage, we were always at the front and we secured the Points jersey. We were able to stay regular through all three weeks, and that’s fantastic – the team was also impressive today. Let’s hope this is a good step to making something beautiful at the Firenze Worlds in two weeks’ time.”
