Richie Porte: «He just had to continue»

interview24.03.2013Stage 3- Porto-Vecchio / Col de l'Ospedale

The deal between Chris and me this morning was: if you have good legs, you go, if I have good legs, I go. Then, when we were in the final climb, he managed to pull away slightly and nobody seemed to react, so he found himself in a situation where he had to continue.
This year, between Paris-Nice and this weekend, I've had the opportunity to show more than what I could do in the previous years but I'm not sure that my level has improved in the mountains. Usually I would spend quite some time at the front of the race on the long climbs. But now people maybe see me a little more.
