Enric Mas: "In La Planche I will try not to waste time"

The Spaniard, eighth overall, was cautious before facing on Thursday the first final high: "Ineos or Movistar will make the race quite tough."

The magnificent time trial that the Deceuninck made in Brussels ranked Enric Mas in a privileged position in the general classification. March eighth, 46 seconds behind his teammate Julian Alaphilippe. The Spaniard knew that his team would perform well in this first week (reached two wins with Alaphilippe and Viviani), and wait responder in La Planche des Belles Filles: "I would like to enter with the best and not waste time. My land will come later, in the high mountains. Even so, I hope I draw some differences to the adversaries. Surely Movistar and Ineos harden the race for their captains, so I must remain very attentive ".

In fact, in the Deceuninck believe that Alaphilippe can resist as a yellow jersey. He is not interested in speculation: "If I lose my sweater I would like it to be picked up by Enric. However, I do not focus on calculations, but on continuing the maximum of yellow. I do not know if I have a sufficient advantage against people like Kruijswijk (25 seconds) or Bernal (40 '') and Thomas (45 ''). I will defend myself with everything. The pronounced percentages (in La Planche there are ramps above 20%) adapt quite well to me ".
