The Antioqueño highlighted the strength of his team throughout the race. “The team has been doing very well, the guys have been looking for breaks, trying to win a stage. They are all very motivated, we are a lucky team because we have 8, no one has left us by accident and that is very important, that is key to continue to Paris ”.
