Rodriguez: “Yesterday I suffered a lot but today I was able to take the pink jersey again. I was afraid of bad weather but in the final part of the stage my sensations were good so when Scarponi attacked, he did it very strong, and Losada was not able to catch Rabottini I attack me too, above all when I saw that Hesjedal dropped from us. It’s clear that with the pink jersey on the shoulders our responsibility growing up, but we enter in the last week and we find mountains that suits me better then these. So I hope to fulfil my dream”.
