More: "Landa has risked, but we are not machines"

The Movistar leader was sixth on the stage, the best Spaniard, and remains eighth overall in a Tour in which he is progressing.


Enric Mas entered sixth in the very tough stage of Col de la Loze, 1:12 behind Superman López and as the best Spaniard. Tomorrow, the 25-year-old from Balearic Islands will continue to start eighth overall (at 4:18) .

"I'm happy, although I would have liked to go a little further. I have suffered a little from the effect of the altitude with three kilometers to go," he analyzed. "I am going step by step, the team arrived late in preparation for the Tour, but we have gone further and I am well placed in the general standings," he said.

"Tomorrow is another important day and López has shown that the Slovenians are not unbeatable," said Mas, who praised Bahrain for hardening the race to try to assault the podium. "Mikel Landa has risked, and he who does not risk does not win. But we are not machines and in the end he has not had the strength" .
