Successful Vuelta for the team

Successful Vuelta for the team

The Vuelta a Espana is done. And Zdenek is pretty happy about that. “It was a hard race. But also a very successful one for our team. We got a top ten place in the GC and four stage victories. We wore the red and green jersey for some days and we finished with nine guys.”

“I thought my shape wasn’t so good at the beginning of the Vuelta, but every day it went better and better. Even on Saturday, in the last mountain stage, I could stay with the best guys for a while. When they attacked obviously I had to let them go. But I did my work.”

And so Zdenek can look back to a good Vuelta. “I’m pretty happy with my performance and my shape. I did what I could do but yet its pity that I didn’t win a stage. Sometimes it doesn’t work out as you want too, but that’s life.”

“My next race will be the Eneco Tour, which starts next Monday. I won that race already once and also took a few stage victories, so I hope I can go for a good result again. But first I have to recover from Spain.”
