    "We expect rain and we'll see how the day goes. A lot of teams wanted to go into the leading group yesterday, it was a tough day and it was a very intense stage. I think we will see the same dynamics today, with a short stage and tomorrow the rest day. Many teams have not yet won and I think it will be a huge battle ", said the Spaniard from the 23-man leading group.
