Óscar Pereiro, the second of the Tour de France 2006, is quiet in these days before the Tour de France. Even if the "public pressure" is higher than in years past, the Spaniard will compete in the race with "the same responsibility" as always.
According to todociclismo, Pereiro, who is waiting to be declared winner of the 2006 Tour de France if the positive doping test of Floyd Landis is upheld, affirmed that he will be in a good competition form when the Tour starts July 7, perhaps "better than last year."
The Galician cyclist participated in the videotaping the Vuelta a España announcement that was registered in Vigo, where the Vuelta will start. He was not willing to answer any questions about the charter the UCI wants all Tour de France participants to sign.
