David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) : “I screamed because I was relieved. The legs hurt in the past few days. I was complaining that it wasn’t going so well and this has been a complicated season. We struggled at the Tour de France and we came to La Vuelta to be more ambitious. Unfortunately Thibaut [Pinot] had to abandon but we stayed motivated together. To win here, at the summit, it’s amazing. I knew I’m explosive and I’m a very strong rider for this type of finish. When Marc Soler attacked with 500m to go, I saw the headwind forced him to quickly sit down again. I waited for the last 150m and I decided to give my all. I saw he was dropped with 75m and it was pure bliss.”
