Angel Madrazo (Burgos-BH): “Today was an easy day, if we can say. It started full gas and I followed the gruppetto because you can’t always be in the breakaway. I’m making the most of the points I took in the first days. It’s up to the others to score and overtake me. There are different stages where we can score lots of points. The two stages of Madrid...
Angel Madrazo (Burgos-BH): “Today was a very hard stage for me. I couldn’t take the points because many riders were interested in scoring. I like that fight, it gives more value and more importance to that polka-dot jersey. We’ll have to keep fighting. I have rivals such as Herrada, Bouchard or Henao, and then you have the GC guys who will score a lot with the...
This blue polka-dot jersey gives extra power. I felt strong today. Notwithstanding, the team told me not to go in the break. They said it was better I stayed in the grupetto to rest a bit thinking of coming days which can be key for the Mountains classification. Therefore, it’s been a relaxed stage for me. One can’t be in the mix every day. Tomorrow it’s...

I was able to come back thanks to my mate Jetse Bol. The team was telling me to save energy for tomorrow, for the mountain points… And I told them: ‘No, no, we need to go for...
Angel Madrazo (Burgos-BH): “We’ been pushing hard and bringing battle since the start of La Vuelta 19. Today it was up to my mate Jorge Cubero to go in the breakaway and I was able to take a point for the Polka-dot jersey myself. Tomorrow and the day after are very hard stages with lots of points to chase. We’ll have to see where I can break away to increase...
I’m very happy to take the King of the Mountains jersey. This was my first goal at La Vuelta 19. I would have enjoyed to fight for the stage victory as well, but it just couldn’t be. Contending for the blue polka-dot jersey? I will take that day by day. We’ll see where I can collect points for that matter in the next few days, but my main goal is to get a stage...
