Caisse d'Epargne rider Vladimir Karpets says he is ready to do “as well as possible" in the Tour de France,” after winning the general classification of the 87th Volta a Catalunya. The Russian dedicated his triumph to his deceased ex teammate, Isaac Gálvez and thanked his teammates for their efforts in making the victory possible.

Karpets will take now part in the Tour of Switzerland, which will be his last test before disputing the Tour de France, in which has expressed his desire to “be among the ten best riders in the Tour de France and if it's possible, to be in the podium.”
