“It’s hard to believe, I still have to absorb it. I can’t believe it, on the queen stage of La Vuelta… Everyone is talking about this mountain event. The truth is, I didn’t feel good during the tour, but I think the rest of the legs hurt more,” he explained.

“Like that Mark Soler was waiting for me, and I thought that as a good runner, I don’t know if I can beat him. But then I accelerated through the hardest part, he blew up and I thought: ‘OK, everything is at the limit and maybe I have a few more left’. It’s amazing,” he concluded.
