Miguel Angel Lopez: "I felt on my terrain above 2000 metres of altitude"

“I’m very happy. I feel emotional because of the work done at home with my family, my wife, my son… I dedicate this victory to them. It hasn’t been easy to arrive where I am now. We were confident. I was on my terrain. At 2000 metres of altitude, I feel like at home. I took some advantage when I had to. It’s wonderful. The team did an excellent job from start to finish. Omar [Fraile] accompanied me, then it was a bit difficult for him but we’ve dreamt big and we never lost faith before fighting day after day. This stage win is the best way to celebrate the birthday of our boss Alexandre Vinokourov. I came to my first Tour with the primary goal to reach Paris. I’ll keep taking it day by day until the end.”
