Landa: "Other times I also gave in and finished up"

The Alavés preferred not to give more laps to 1:07 lost with Roglic and looks forward. He blamed the allergies to be wrong in this beginning of Giro.


Despite the rain with which Bologna fired them and at 1:07 yielded to Primoz Roglic in the opening time, Mikel Landa preferred to throw optimism before the second stage of the Giro: "I'm not going around a lot so, although at night I was touched. I want to look forward to the 20 days that we still have to play. I will face them with the intention of recovering time in each occasion that occurs. A lot of mountains are missing ".

Eusebio Unzué said at the press conference prior to the start of the race that he had not seen Landa" more fit than ever ":" It comes at a moment full of energy, I think better than in life. He has had the peace of mind to prepare well the Giro after his clavicle fracture. I only ask that you respect your health in order to enjoy the great Mikel that we all know is there. "

But those words fell on deaf ears, since the Alavés attributed to" allergies "his discrete time trial:" I had been there for several days. I was not feeling well I do not want it to serve as an excuse, it is that I felt bad and could be due to allergy, to accumulated pollen. Luckily, it has rained and cleared the air. In the Giro of 2015 and the Tour of 2017 I also lost an important cushion in the first times: in one acabé third and in another, a second of third place. In both braking, so we have to continue and not lower our arms ".
