"We have two days left to complete all the work"
"We knew that the climb to Jabal Hatt, which was longer than the previous day's climb to Qurayyat, suited me better. A big thank you to all my teammates who protected me and trusted me all day. I did not want to follow the first attack in the final because the slope was terrible. I came back just after the final sprint started. And finally, there is this podium at the finish. This third place confirms the good feelings I had during our training in Sierra Nevada. Now we have two days left to put all the work into practice. Tomorrow, the stage will be more for the punches. I think that everything will be decided on the last stage with the ascent of Green Mountain.
