Yates: "The two coming stages are gonna be very difficult"

Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott): “It was a very calm day, the easiest so far at La Vuelta. And then we had a very fast finale, so I tried to stay at the front to be safe. Alejandro Valverde and Enric Mas are both very classy bike riders. I expect them to be very active to try and win the race. I think we have the strongest team now so I expect to have the most guys in the front group to help me. I’ve been living in Andorra for most of my professional career, since 2015. I know the climbs very well. I think the two coming stages are gonna be very difficult. I’m just trying to do my own race, I think I can win and I just try to do that. Of course British cycling has come a long way for the last 10 years and I hope to continue this trend.”
