Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana Pro Team): “Today was not only a hard final climb - the whole stage was demanding. We’ve been riding very fast on demanding roads. I think in the end we saw who were the riders one step above the rest. We don’t know who will be my fiercest rival. This climb suited Valverde better, because it was short and explosive, so we can’t read too much there. We’ve seen a different scenario in Javalambre, with a different type of climb. The stage in Andorra is better for my characteristics, with longer climbs and that’s good for me. We have good memories from Andorra and I hope to create some more this week-end. La Vuelta is still long. I want to enjoy La Roja.”
