Alejandro gives it all

Alejandro gives it all

Another great stage for Movistar Team

Despite the fact he was in difficulty in the last climb of today stage, the Pla d’Adet, Alejandro brilliantly saved the day thanks to his mental force and his Movistar Team mates’ help. One more time they achieved a superb job to support their leader. 

The Spaniard, who crossed the line in tenth position after finishing very strong, declared: 

“I got myself through a very bad moment – I kept a steady pace, my team-mates were really phenomenal and we got through the day with even better results than we could expect after dropping. I kept myself calm, trying to stay at the same speed, but when I saw the 300m banner, I gave it everything up to the finish. I’m happy to have got that way over this. We’re still into the fight, doing the best we can – rivals are strong, this is the Tour, anything is taken for granted and you’ve got to give your 100%. There’s still a really demanding stage tomorrow; I don’t know if it suits me better than today’s, I think it’s quite the same for me. We’ll have to give everything again. Péraud looks like the most dangerous rival for the podium in these days left, and especially for the TT, but no one can be ruled out.”

Tomorrow, stage 18: Pau-Hautacam (146 km).
