After completing a relaxed 90-minute ride to keep the legs moving, Samu talked to the team's website about the fight for the podium. "Right now I'd sign up for third place. There's a difference between being second and third, but both places are pictured on the podium on the Champs-Elysées. For us it would be great, a historical moment, and we will do our utmost to obtain it. Three years ago I made the podium in the Vuelta in the last time trial on the expense of Cadel Evans. Saturday's ITT will be a fight between great riders. Let's hope I'm still feeling good and can hold on to that third place."
