"It was hard to finally raise the arms but what a nice day in Nice today. It was a very spectacular stage. This time I couldn't be in contention for the GC but I managed to win a stage. With Luis Leon Sanchez, we decided to go in the breakaway and then we saw some guys coming back from behind like Quintana. and then Miguel Angel Lopez told us he was tired. So in the last climb I decided to go and give it my all. And it worked. It's amazing the amount of stages we have been winning with Astana. Lutsenko won in Tirreno yesterday and me today. It's exceptional."
