Nicolas Roche (Team Sunweb): “Last time I kept La Roja for only one day so I’m happy to do more this time. In the first part of the race, I actually was able to enjoy wearing it. It was more relax than yesterday and I was able to chat with some friends in the bunch. Then obviously coming into the last kilometres it was more stressful and I had to make sure we were out of trouble. Tomorrow will be a completely different scenario. I expect fireworks from the Colombian riders. I know it is going to be very difficult to keep the red jersey, it might be very ambitious to aim at doing so, but I am going to do my best and fight until the last meter. The team is feeling on a high spirit and I believe it will remain like that in the next days whether I keep the jersey or not.”
