Miguel Ángel López: "My third place makes the whole team happy"

I’m very happy with the team work that enabled me to finish on the podium of La Vuelta. My team-mates have always ridden flat out for me. We already had done a great Giro before and we kept the same mentality at La Vuelta. Unfortunately, I missed out on the stage victory yesterday. We wanted it badly for celebrating the birthday of Alexandr Vinokourov, our manager at Astana....

Alejandro Valverde: "I've had great moments during this Vuelta"

I’ve had great moments during this Vuelta. I can’t choose one between my two stage wins. The worst moment was yesterday when I got kicked out of the podium. But it hasn’t been a disaster since the public kept supporting me. I see Enric Mas as a great rider for the future. For now, he’s pretty similar to Contador. He’s got skills for time trialing...

Enric Mas: "I want more"

It’s been a great moment to appear on the final podium of La Vuelta. It was my goal although I kept it for myself coming into the race. I might be a different rider now after I achieved this but I’m the same person. I hope for more moments like in the future, including on the top spot.

Simon Yates: "I got nervous when I went on stage"

It’s still hard to believe that I’ve won La Vuelta. I was disappointed to not win the Giro but I’ve made it up. I’m in shock. I got really nervous when I went on stage. My natural habitat is on the bike… I enjoyed the moment. It was a very special one. We’ll see what my future is like. I’ll keep trying very hard to win races like La...

Elia Viviani: "We can be proud"

I lost my train today. We’re at the end of the third week of a Grand Tour. That makes a difference. I think I lost my lead out with 2km to go at a roundabout but I remained confident that I’d come from the back. At the last corner, I told my guys that I wasn’t there so they slowed down. Every mistake makes us improve. But the outcome is really good. We can be...
