We demonstrated that we needn’t to try to win special stages to win a
convene – thoroughness and coherence also are essential factors. We
found a good stroke and knew that stages offering us a opportunity
to pull and benefit time and where we should opt for a some-more regressive approach.”

 

Roma: “It’s good to be here in Moscow. We gathering the
final theatre really good – again we started from nearby a front so there
were not many lines to cranky and we could expostulate fast. About the
result: it was not a one we expected. We approaching to quarrel for the
win from start to finish – this is always a goal. On a certain side
we lonesome many kilometres and we feel good after that initial day and
a accident. we contingency contend a large appreciate we to Alex and a group for all
their efforts via a race.”
