From: Tour de France Key Moments
During the hubbub of the post-race interviews, it was suggested to A.S. that he's a future winner of the TdF. That may be the case but the leader of the youth classification isn't prepared to talk up his chances while he's busy working on another job.
A.S.: "I felt really good but I'm here to learn and it's been a good Tour so far and I showed some weakness which some of the others didn't and that's why I'm so far down in the GC now. But I'm optimistic and I'm really happy to finish third today here, on Alpe D'Huez. I mean, I think I showed something and nobody could have followed Carlos today. He was incredibly strong and also really confident when he had to be. When he left us nobody could really do anything.
"I'm not listening when people say I'm a future winner of the TdF. I'll stay with my feet on the ground. What everybody expects from me and what they say about me....well that's just talk but I'm the one who has to do the work and I'd like to come back here one day and try again. I know that it was a lot of work to do to be here and do what I've done this year.
"I will come back one year and try to reach the podium of the Tour. I think it's possible; why not? But I'm not going to say that I'm going to win it one day."
Nice kid, head screwed on straight, not too cocky.
Definitely a future TdF Winner!
