It was uncertain if he would get to start right up to the week before the tour, crackled loss in Rotterdam. Now enjoying Carlos Sastre by a wide-open Tour de France after being passed by the first week, a roasting such with lots of crashes, cobble and rock, without losing too much time to their worst competitors.

He is after the first week’s fatigues at a twelfth place, distanced by 2:40 by Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) who took over the lead in the competition after yesterday’s hard stage.

There have been a rest day in the Tour de France today, and the Spaniard in the Cervélo Test Team took the opportunity to spend some of his free time by being on his team’s press conference in Morzine.

“I was good enough to be with your Favorites today. I had great anticipation of yesterday’s stage, there was no one who knew what was coming. The first week has been full of excitement, a lot of crashes, heat and wind. I am calm, this Tour has just begun, “said Carlos Sastre appears to thrive.

“I haven’t set any goals for this year’s Tour, I enjoy the race from a different point of view this year. I take it day by day.

Carlos Sastre commented on the heat that lies over France during the press conference and said that if it is still there when the tour reached the Pyrenees, it is going to be barbaric.

“If I have the chance I will try something but I don’t have any particular plan. I was not even sure that I would be able to start the tour, “said Sastre, referring to the back problems he got after Giro d’Italia.

The Spaniard also noted that the race is more open than in many years.

“This is the first Tour for a long time where there are favorites from several different teams that have the opportunity to win. It is very open.
