    Alberto Contador finished safely first stage as the Tour leader, despite the harshness of the course, where the Astana team returned to do a great job from the first pass, the Peyresourde, which attacks began. And, moreover, also solved the problem emerged with Andy Schleck on Bales climb. "We have used the day to talk and we have already arranged everything. Both of us did not want to see our friendship broken by what happened yesterday".

    Alberto was happy because he had resolved a controversy that did not like. So he put up a video on Youtube. "I did it because I really wanted, I had no obligation. It is a situation that I dislike, is something that I don't want and, above all, I did it for the great relationship I have with Andy. We are friends and we talked about during the race and after. We have solved everything, because we don't want to break our friendship".

    About the race, Alberto said it was "a difficult day. After the start there was a lot of attacks and after 10 kilometers of the first climb only 14 riders stayed in front of the pack. It was somewhat complicated because the peloton was broken and there were still 190 km to go, but the team has been very good".

    "We kept calm everytime", he continued, "because we knew we had to control until the last km when the interests of those who are playing the honor positions come to play". Everything is now pending on what happens on Thursday, on the Tourmalet climb and Saturday in the time trial. "The stage of the Tourmalet will be a beautiful day", said Alberto, who declined to comment further on the time trial. "First we will see what happens in the Tourmalet. Then we could talk about the time trial", he concluded.
