Landa: "Carapaz proved to be stronger than me"

The Alava assumes "a second plane" and recognizes having lost more time than he expected, but wants to turn the situation on the mountain.


Mikel Landa is at 4:52 of Primoz Roglic after the first nine stages of the Giro. A performance far below of what he and Movistar expected: "Pretend to lose much less time than I am against. The race is very uphill. The only way to come back is to have better legs than before. "

With Andrey Amador 49 seconds behind Roglic and Richard Carapaz at 3:16, the Alavés acknowledges that he will have a" second plane "within the team:" For the first block we worked with me as leader and we protected Richie (Carapaz). And as showed in these nine days to walk stronger than I, I place myself in a second step, although I want to reverse the situation ".

For the mountain, he wants the losses of Simon Yates and Miguel Ángel López to make them become two allies: "They must also go on the attack , because they gave more than the account in the San Marino chrono. In my case, I will see day by day what is best to try to cut. Much hardness remains and the ambition for going around the Giro continues intact. "
