La Vuelta 3: Geniez and Fernandez Dominate the Giant Climb

Sorry dudes: yesterday I found my home in Florence without electricity and partially flooded with dirty water. I spent the day cleaning and it isntot over yet. I couldn't see anything about the race. 
I had decided to stop writing race reports, because after so many years it became pure routine, but honestly I was eager to watch and to report this one: the giant climb was a big story's promise...

Alexandre Geniez:
"Thank you everybody for your messages. What a joy and what a reward after those months of hard work!"

Rubén Fernández:
"I couldn't expect this at all. I knew I was coming in good form to this Vuelta, as I had finished sixth overall in both Pologne and Burgos. Plus, my goal here was working for Nairo and Alejandro. However, I was told in the finale to ride by myself... and here we are, wearing red and the leader's jersey in my second Grand Tour. It hadn't really come through my mind to attack: I was just setting the pace in case Nairo could attack, I was trying to make things harder for the rest. At the end, they told e to ride on my own, and I could open that gap. I celebrated out of pure joy, because of the GC lead; by the earpiece I was told I would sit 1st overall after the stage... I couldn't be happier. My goal remains the same: we can't forget for a second about helping out our team leaders, which is the main objective, yet I'll surely defend this jersey with all I've got."

Alejandro Valverde:
"We knew Rubén was in great form leading up to this race, and he proved it today. I'm so happy to see him taking over the lead. He's a young man, but we all know what he's made of. The work he did at the front to take us closer to Geniez was excellent; we couldn't have battled for the stage either if he hadn't worked, and that's why I feel he rode perfectly. He dropped all of our rivals but Chaves when we three went ahead, and later on, we could keep a steady pace to keep the gaps and avoid the late push by Froome taking us out of his wheel. Alberto lost a bit of time, but there's a lot to happen yet in this Vuelta. About me? Well, I didn't feel bad at all - let's hope I can keep it up through the next stages."

Nairo Quintana:
"Well, everyone could see Rubén has come fresh to this Vuelta! His climb was phenomenal, he's a young boy full of talent. He was really strong today. When it comes to myself, I could feel the wear and tear of the Tour. Froome was a bit ahead, Alberto lost some ground... yet I feel like these gaps won't matter much at the end of the Vuelta. Let's keep going day-by-day; the legs are feeling all we went through in the Tour at the moment."

Alberto Contador:
“It wasn’t a good day overall but as I said before, the Vuelta is far from over and the time differences still aren’t very big. I am not satisfied, but I feel that my form will improve in the coming days.”

Steven Kruijswijk:
“I started this Vuelta with ambitions, so you want to finish among the best riders on the first summit finish. I wasn’t able to do that, today, clearly. I didn’t feel strong. The only reason I can give is my illness in the past weeks, which was the reason that I haven’t been able to train a lot. I slipped back a little bit and I have to make sure that I’m able to improve in this race to make the most of it. I’m confident about tomorrow in some way because I feel fit and healthy again. I’m not in my best shape, but I’m expecting to improve in the upcoming days.”

Pieter Serry:
"It was a day of intense suffering, made even tougher by the hot temperatures. We had a gap of around two minutes at the start of Mirador de Ezaro, but it was too steep for me and I couldn't hang in there anymore. Geniez was stronger, it's not a shame to admit that. I am satisfied with my form and I hope to do better in the following stages."

Chris Froome:
"The climb can definitely catch you out if you start too fast. It's easy to think that at only 1.8km you can get a bit carried away at the bottom and I think a few guys fell into that trap and paid for it in the final 500m. I was quite happy with how that went for me.
I was trying to ride at my own pace. At the bottom I got gapped a bit from the leaders but kept pedalling away, trying to get back to the front. It's seven minutes long, but for a short climb... you know about it. It's similar to the Mur du Huy, but longer I guess."
He was quick to praise the work of his team-mates, including the red jersey holder Michal Kwiatkowski.
The guys did a really good job getting me into a good final position. I've a lot of respect for those guys, [Michal] Kwiatkowski and Pete [Kennaugh], they were obviously on the same time as me, but they've been great team-mates, sacrificing themselves. I was quite pleased with how the legs felt and for day three I'm happy with the overall standings.
Staying out of trouble, choosing my moments, and hopefully ride into the race a little bit. Obviously the time trial at the end is going to be a key stage for me. That's a stage I'm focusing on. For now, I'm just trying to stay out of trouble."
