Froome Chat: Vuelta Rest Day

This is the press release from team Sky after the rest day in the Vuelta … 

“To be a minute ahead of my closest rival is a good position to be in after two weeks of racing and going into the final week.

“The team has been a big, big part of how my race has gone so far. I think Sunday’s stage was a great show of the team I have around me and just the fact that we were put under so much pressure by our opposition and the way the team handled it and didn’t panic at all.

“We just focused on what our tactic of the day was – which was to really control things and look after the leader’s jersey. And it’s thanks to the team that we handled that situation.

“I’ve been looking forward to the TT, it’s certainly going to be one of the more crucial stages that will decide this year’s Vuelta GC. I’m not expecting to take huge amounts of time, but if I can extend my lead at all that would be fantastic.

“I take it one day at a time at the moment. Obviously Angliru is at the end of the week and that’s looming in the back of my mind as well.

“The day after the TT we’ve got Los Machucos to think about which is tough as in a TT you can’t really save much for the next day. Having said that, I’m certainly going to ride the TT with Machucos in mind and know that I’ll need quite a lot to get up the steep summit finish.”
