Bernal: "We come to take advantage of any opportunity if we are well located"

The Colombian cyclist is not considered the leader of the team after the loss of time of Adam Yates and Richard Carapaz in the previous stages.


The Ineos Grenadiers team rider Egan Bernal blamed the wind for making this stage of the Vuelta so fast: “In the last kilometers the wind came from the side and it was not strong enough to break the group but there was also tension, you had to be there up front, so I think that's why it went pretty fast… Then, at the end, it was downwind so it was already very fast. ”

Asked if he is the sole leader of the team after Yates and Carapaz have wasted time, the Bogota-born denies it flatly: “Not at all. I don't think the time they have wasted isn't that much, is it? It is clear that it is some time lost, but it is the Tour of Spain, we are at the end of the season and anything can happen ”.

He was also “very happy” when he learned of Fabio Jakobsen's victory: “I was sprinting hard to avoid cutting myself and I heard that he had won. He is an example of not giving up and he went for it. ”
