Thank you Alejandro!

Thank you Alejandro!

No podium but all yours fans are very proud of you

Alejandro could not achieve his dream of making part again of the top 3 after the last but one stage of the Tour de France, a 54 km ITT, but the Spaniard gave it all till the last meter of the best Tour of his entire cycling.  Tomorrow in Paris, he will finish the Grande Boucle in fourth position.

Here is what Alejandro told after the individual time trial that took place between Bergerac and Périgueux:

“I’ve tried, but me legs didn’t respond as I wanted them to do. I did more or less know the time gaps on course and also that I was losing the podium. I went as fast as I could, that’s it. The last week did end up paying too much of an impact – the Tour was really difficult regarding the weather conditions, and rain and cold did affect me a bit. We kept fighting, and when you give everything you’ve got, you can’t ask yourself for more. I’m sad I couldn’t bring the fans some joy at the end of this Tour; I would have liked to make it into the podium, too, but on the other hand, I’m happy with this result. Now it’s just about getting through that final stage, think about what we did and plan on the future.”
