King of the mountains

“It's been a very fast start and I've been lucky enough to make the breakaway. Nibali was up there too but he was the danger number 1 for our move. Fortunately he didn't stay in the front group. It went well for me in the first two climbs. I got the KOM points I wanted but I was tired in the last hill. I still tried to go for the stage win though… But my main goal is to win the polka dot jersey. This would be something unique in my career. I have a big week ahead. I hope for the best in the Pyrenees, close to home.”
