    Alberto Contador crossed the finish line today in fourth place, behind the leader, Brajkovic, and after having been a major player in the ascent to Risoul, where also Astana team proved to be in good form, with Tiralongo, Jesus Hernandez and Navarro working on the last kilometers. Contador, however, says nothing has changed in his plans. "I continue with the same approach. I attacked a bit to prove, but it was not planed and I was not sure of my form".

    "It has been hard, very hot and very long stage, with more than six hours on the bike", said Alberto. "In the last climb I've been watching, but I have seen the kilometers passed and no one decided to attack". For its part, the Astana team was also tested in the last part of the climb. "The team also has to take the philosophy of the Tour. They are in good shape and they also have to be in place. What better test than this, but that does not mean we will take the responsibility".

    Alberto is happy with his teammates. "They are very motivated. They could have gone faster, but I have not encouraged them because I was suffering enough for the allergy, but in the end I had a good sensations. The climb to Risoul is complicated, because it was so much wind and you could go comfortable on the wheel, but was not very good if you were alone. After this I shall try to recover. If the legs goes well, better, and if not, too, because the objective remains the Tour de France", he concluded.
