Let’s go for the podium

Let’s go for the podium

Alejandro will give it all in the time trial

Today stage, between Maubourguet et Bergerac, was everything but a stage allowing the courageous riders of the Tour de France to recover, considering the rain made the day very hard. 

Tomorrow in the time trial, Alejandro will give it all to finish the race on the podium. 

Copy the link hereunder to see how Alejandro came last June in Bergerac to study of the decisive ITT (54 km between Bergerac and Périgueux:


And here are Alejandro’s quotes after today stage:

“Everyone could see it on TV and can imagine how it’s been like today, no real rest. It was 200k under full rain; even though it’s true it wasn’t really could out there, spending so much time on the bike getting drenched in rain, in stressful, dangerous roads – it makes you reach the finish dead tired. Still, we stayed up-front all day and got through the crash well.

I already know tomorrow’s time trial. I trained here in June and we’ll check it again this evening to remember all details before the racing. It’s a demanding one: 54km, with small slopes – anything could happen. You can’t get crazy about GC time gaps on the bikes: you just give your 100%, go flat out… just like that. I’m performing well in TT’s this season, I became Spanish champion last month, and I think I can do well. I have good legs and would like to contest both third and second places. I might as well stay with what I have right now at the end, but I’m confident: I think I can do well.”
