Richie Porte: «What happens, happens!»

interview23.03.2013Stage 2- Porto-Vecchio / Porto-Vecchio

“I really enjoyed the two climbs on the time-trial at the beginning and the end of the course. I notice that I've really improved since this winter, working hard on my time-trialling position. Full credit goes to my team that helped me do that work.
For tomorrow, it'll certainly be a nice battle. But I believe that Froome is the best climber of this race. He's only 3” adrift and I believe we have the team to control the race in the climb. I'm really confident of what will happen in tomorrow's stage. I came here to work for Froome and now I have the yellow jersey on my shoulders. I'd be happy to ride for him, and I'm sure that he would be happy to ride for me. Anyhow it's better to have two leaders in the team. What happens, happens!
We know that Tejay Van Garderen is very strong and Talansky has also shown that he's in great shape at the moment. But we have a great team and Van Garderen must also consider that it's dangerous to have us around him with times that are so close before the final stage.”
