Alberto Contador: "Beyond expectations"

interview14.06.2014Stage 7- Ville-la-Grand / Finhaut-Emosson

“The truth is that I knew little about the final climb but I was told that the last five kilometers were very hard. I was well escorted by five of my team-mates. At 2km to go, I was close to my limit but I tried my luck with attacking. It's an incredible surprise that I managed to take the yellow jersey. This is an incredible race. It has gone beyond my expectations so far but the Dauphiné is not over yet. Tomorrow it's a complicated stage with an uphill finish. Team Sky is very strong. Whatever happens, I'm happy with how my legs are getting better and better every day. This is a preparation race. The most important for me is to be at 100% of my capacities on July 5.”
