“It will be "all against all" stage - smiles Michele Scarponi now 7th after the Calp time trial - for now i’m happy to have gained two positions in the GC."
"The course was very nervous - he added - and I thought to defend myself. I know well the climbs we will do tomorrow and I'm sure someone will pay the today’s effort”.
"The goal was to earn some rank - commented sport director Alexandr Shefer - and we did it. Tomorrow we will see who has remained more strength in the legs”.
The today time trial was dominated by the British Christopher Froome who now is 1'21“ behind the leader the Colombian Nairo Quintana.
Tomorrow other super stage of this Vuelta. Four 2nd category climbs before the assault of “especial” category Alto de Aitana over 21 km uphill with an average gradient of 5.9% and a maximum of 13.30%. On top we will know the name of the 2016 final red jersey.
