“Today was a very nice stage, though on the final 5 kilometres from the finish we had a puncture, but got there okay. Yesterday was a bad day. We had a problem in the first kilometre when we lost all traction and broke the rear axel. Today is the best day I think I’ve had. Four days from the finish, I need to go faster. The top three positions are very close. Every day if I can avoid having too many problems or anything broken on my car then I think it’s possible to win”.
