A good Vuelta for TBM

  |   Press

Madrid, September 16th 2018 – “I sprinted to take the wheel of a Movistar’s rider – explains Ivan Garcia Cortina – then a Cofidis come between us and suddenly he broke the chain and I found myself alone and I didn’t have enough strength to start again. Patience, overall I think I did a good Vuelta definitely better than last year “.

Ion Izagirre finished his first Vuelta with a good 9th place overall. “Before starting I hoped to make a Top Ten and stage by stage I saw that it was a result I could reach. There were good and bad days but, in the end, thanks to the help of my teammates, I gathered what I had hoped for “.

Sport Director Gorazd Štangelj: “It has been a very demanding Vuelta as usual. We did well at the Tour de France and in Spain too the team proved to have grown a lot compared to last season. We got several Top Ten stages and we reach the second place in the Team Classification. A positive result that makes us look at the future with optimism “.
