More: "This is my site, too bad to fail on two important days"

The Spaniard rose to sixth place and Pello Bilbao, to ninth, due to the fainting of Urán. The Basque spoke of the Bahrain raid: "It's sad."


Enric Mas finished fourth at Luz Ardiden after resisting alongside Tadej Pogacar, Jonas Vingegaard and Richard Carapaz, and even attempting an attack in the last kilometer. The Spaniard reached sixth place in the general standings and was satisfied with his performance in the mountain finish of the 2021 Tour, but not in the overall race: “I think this is my place. Unfortunately, the two days I failed (Ventoux and Portet) were more important. I came here looking for the Paris box and for now I'm sixth, so I'm not happy. We are going to try to finish in the best way, the time is left, to rest a little later and start preparing for the Vuelta ”.

For its part, Pello Bilbao rose to ninth position, also due to the fainting of Rigoberto Urán. The Basque wanted to finish in the top-ten: "Another step forward in my career." Regarding the raid to which the gendarmes subjected Bahrain, he did not avoid the question: “It seems sad to me, but we inherited it from previous years. Now we are on the right track to clean up the image of cycling, although people do not quite believe our results to the point of suffering persecution. ”
