Miguel Angel Lopez (Movistar Team): “I wanted to win again in La Vuelta for a long time and I have achieved it thanks to the magnificent work of my teammates, despite the fact that there are only five of us after the loss of Carlos [Verona], Alejandro [Valverde] and [Johan] Jacobs. Thanks to Imanol [Erviti], Nelson [Oliveira], Rojilla [Jose Joaquin Rojas] and Enric [Mas], who have done a great job. We knew it was nice to prevail at a stage like today. It had been four years since I won at La Vuelta and it’s even better in the queen stage, I do it with love and desire for my son as well. I think this victory means a lot for Movistar because of the great work of all the team, only those of us who are there know the suffering day by day, it is not only talking and criticising. Today we gave a nice show and we go away with this nice victory. We are now calm, we knew it was an important day and we had to take advantage of it.”
