“I do my best always, while training at home and when I’m in the race. It’s true, most of the times I have to work for my captain but I’m proud of this because I know that my work and my dedication is appreciated and can be very helpful even in the hottest race situations” said Zeits speaking about himself.
“Then it can also happen that I have my chance to play for the victory but this is not the most important thing… what really matters to me is that the Astana Pro Team wins the race with the colours of our jersey on the top step of the podium” explained the Kazakh.
“Today I arrived together with my strong team mate Luis Leon Sanchez only 1 minute and 49 seconds after the stage winner: I’m satisfied about this result because it means that my condition is growing in the hoped way, to be at the top at the Giro d’Italia that will start in 8 days and I will be helpful for Nibali and the Team” continued Zeits.
“I will do the Giro and then we will see how will be my condition: last year I did the Giro and the Vuelta helping Fabio Aru who cocluded respectively second and first, both great satisfactions to me. Now my focus is 100% on the Giro and then together with the Team Management we will decide between the Tour of the Vuelta… only one thing I can promise: anyway I will do my best to help my team mates” concluded the Kazakh athlete.
Tomorrow the third stage of the Tour de Romandie is another individual time trial with start and finish in Sion, 15.11 km lenght and 280 meters of difference in level.
