The Spaniard Mikel Landa is Saturday in Tirreno-Adriatico for the first win for his new team Movistar. The fingers that he was at the crossing of the finish to the heavens founded, were addressed to the late Michele Scarponi.

Scarponi, in the past, a team mate of Landa at Astana, lived not far from arrival Sarnano Sassotetto. “It’s special to win here, near the house of my friend. My overwinningsgebaar was for him. He will always be with us, we will always remember him”, responded an emotional Landa.

“I knew that I was in a good condition, it is important to apply. This confirms that I’m on the right path. So early in the season can win for a new team makes things easier and gives you more confidence. We had the perfect strategy. Sky took the lead, we waited until the right moment. Early attack, that could be suicide.”

In the position, Landa is now in fourth place, 20 seconds behind leader Damiano Caruso. “We will need to continue to fight to the end for the championship. But I prefer there is not too much to to see and the day a day to take it,” ended Landa.
