Nice surprise after a disappointing stage

Nice surprise after a disappointing stage

Chris Froome has won stage eleven in the Vuelta a Espana. Styby was hoping for a good result for a while after an escape, but the peloton caught him and the rest of the group. “Luckily there will be more chances later.”

“In the beginning I wasn’t feeling very good. That’s typical after a restday for me. I was suffering, but later I felt better and I saw a chance to go into the breakaway. And I went for it. We were with 23 riders in the front and I thought we had a good chance.”

There was a good cooperation in the group. “But suddenly Tinkoff started to chase very hard in the peloton and we were caught in the final. Very disappointing. But ok, that’s the race and tomorrow we will try again.”

“After the race my wife Ine and son Lewis surprised me with a visit. That really made my day.”
