    Alberto Contador finished third in the Fleche Wallonne and did honor to the Ardennes classics, where he has come with the same fighting spirit that tends to show in all competitions. The victory is narrowly escaped, also due to the great performance of Cadel Evans and Joaquim Rodriguez, and also Igor Anton, who attacked first in Huy, and Alberto replied the first. The last 200 meters were decisive, as Evans and Rodriguez went to Contador in the final sprint.
    Contador said he might have required that the wall of Huy “would have been a bit longer to use my qualities. I am not a specialist in classics, because the best cuality I have is recovery, but despite that I'm happy with what I achieved today. After the circumstances of the journey to come here, it’s not bad, but it is also true that when you're so close is not a relief to be third”.
    Alberto repeated that his goal this week is “to take experience in these races and so I'm happy with what I achieved. It is now Liege on Sunday, but do not know what will happen, I will try to recover and I would do well, but be aware that it is a different race. In Fleche we passed several times through the finish and is not the same in Liege. I do not know how I will answer there”.
    Contador also appreciated the work of their team mates. “The whole team has play with me and have done a great job, it has been a pity not to win, but neither I had ever been third in a classic of this level and so I'm happy. We will see what happens on Sunday”, he said.
