Caruso: "I'm sorry for Mikel"

The Italian cyclist attacked 70 kilometers from the finish line and climbed the Velefique peak alone. He only saw victory with two kilometers to go.


Damiano Caruso, winner of the ninth stage of La Vuelta, was very happy and tired after his victory at Velefique. “The last climb has made me eternal. I was only able to concentrate, to maintain my rhythm and only in the last two kilometers did I see that I was going to get the stage. ”

The Team Bahrain Victorious rider decided to go solo with 70 kilometers to go. "The time that Ineos was marking was very hard", so he "played it" and was surprised to gain more and more difference as the kilometers passed.

When asked about his teammate and team leader, Mikel Landa, Caruso replied that he had heard something on the radio. "I feel sorry for Mikel. I was just focused on my career, "he said.
