Mikel Landa started with some doubts about the Tour of Burgos, but the Spanish climber finished second in the final classification after five stages. “I am really very satisfied with a second place,” he said at the top of Lagunas de Neila.
The leader of Bahrain McLaren was unable to cycle Remco Evenepoel from the leader’s jersey yesterday, but Landa managed to move up a spot at the expense of George Bennett. “We didn’t know what to expect before the start of the round. We have not raced for a long time and that is always difficult. ”
“However, I can look back on a good week. I am very satisfied with a second place in the general classification. I tried to follow Iván Sosa in the final stage (with arrival at Lagunas de Neila, ed.), But he managed to shake off a very strong demarrage. Unfortunately I couldn’t follow. ”
Finally, Landa has praise for the final winner Evenepoel. “We really have to harvest now, because in two or three years’ time, if he has even more experience, he will be really unbeatable,” Landa concludes with a wink. “But seriously: it is really impressive and can shine in all areas.”
