Dylan Teuns (Bahrain-Merida): “I already had the red jersey on my mind before I came to La Vuelta. Today I raced for the stage and in the final climb I went all in with 4km to go. It would have been nicer to also win the stage but I’m happy with La Roja. I was unlucky that one guy was strong enough to follow me, and then I didn’t have the legs to sprint in the last 300m. We have to see how I can defend the jersey. Tomorrow we have a pretty hard and steep final climb. I saw yesterday the GC riders are really strong. I’m a little bit of everything. I love the classics but i also like one-week stage races. And in the Grand Tours, I like to go for opportunities like I did today. To win a stage in a Grand Tour and now to wear the leader jersey, I had never done it so I feel like I’m still improving."
