Ane Santesteban (Team Jayco AlUla): “I’m being quite unlucky in this Vuelta Femenina”

I’m being quite unlucky in this Vuelta Femenina. I’ve crashed twice because the rider in front of me hit the deck and I couldn’t avoid her. The Navafria climb has been very hard for me – even harder than the final one! It is a very long climb and, since Marta Cavalli started setting a very strong pace at its very beginning, I ended up being in the red. Afterwards I reckoned most riders were also suffering and that helped me overcome this moment of crisis and reach the final climb within the group. The last stage is going to be defining one. Big gaps can be made in Lagos de Covadonga.
