Castroviejo: "The highway will say if Thomas or Bernal is easy"

The Basque Corridor of Ineos will be one of the fundamental pillars of the British team in this Tour: "My job is to help the leaders".


The favorite race of Jhonathan Castroviejo, one of the most valued gregarious of the peloton, is "el Tour". Therefore, all seasons focus on reaching "in full guarantees" to the French round: "For that my teams want me here, so that work for leaders, and in this case, Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal" . Vizcaíno, 32 years old, completes his second campaign in the Ineos after remaining between 2012 and 2017 in Movistar, at the service of Nairo Quintana: "With him I won the Giro and the Vuelta I was missing the Tour ... and I got it in 2018 with the Sky and Thomas ".

Your preparation for 2019 was delayed by an fall in the Tour of the Basque Country:" There I suffered seven fractures. Then I saw myself in competition in Switzerland, and it raised my morale by checking the good shape I had reached. " In the National Time Trial he became the first Spaniard to add five titles: "I did not think about the record, but rather about setting the set-up for the Tour, they appreciate me for factors like throwing in the flat and on the mountain, that polivalence I polished it since I decided to work for Nairo in the 2013 edition, in which it finished second ".

In 2019 it will behoove you to defend the interests of two captains, Thomas and Bernal:" It happened in 2018 with G and Froome: la Road puts everyone in their place. Cycling has no mystery and should not be so complicated, until one of us weakens, we will always tuck them up. " At the moment, after a great time by squadrons in which they distanced all their opponents except Kruijswijk, the Colombian is five seconds ahead of the Welshman thanks to the cut that occurred in the hard finish of Epernay, precisely between Bernal ( 12º) and Thomas (13º) .

Castroviejo defines Thomas as "an excellent time trialist who climbs phenomenally" . And highlights "the tranquility and good vibes" he contributes to colleagues, technicians and assistants. About Bernal, "normal in a kid of 22 years": "It is a corridor with much more nerve, active and impulsive, but humble and with a very well furnished head". Both are considered clear contenders for the yellow jersey: "They are very strong, they beat brutal beats in the time trial, we are sure we are in a position to bring another joy to the body" .

With a contract in force for 2020, the Basque recognizes that They have noticed the change of Sky's sponsorship to Ineos: "The colors have been modified, and little else, but the directors were ten and they always informed us and sent e-mails about any news regarding the search for the new sponsor" . And he sends a message: "For the next fixed season we will enjoy nice news and Froome's return after his injury" .
