The Movistar man was satisfied after the stage. "He took me a few seconds, but I'm happy. He has been faster than me. I think at no time have we had him against the ropes, but with this job we will. I seemed to be going stronger, but because I'm the one who needs recover, "he noted.

Facing the future, the Mallorcan promises a battle. "Today the plan was to take time out of everyone, and we have done less with him. I do not know how the general is going, I know that I am second, but not the times. Hopefully Miguel Ángel and I will be able to take off the red jersey that is very important in the home race, but we would also sign to stay like this, "he concluded.

For his part, Primoz Roglic did not want to eliminate the rest, especially Ineos. "It was a very hard day, hot and with a lot of mountains. The team did a great job to set a strong rhythm. In the final part they picked up the pace, luckily I had legs and was able to finish. Enric was very strong and we worked hard. together. It is the beginning now we need to rest tomorrow and see how we plan the next stages, "he concluded.
