With Team CSC's Jakob Piil the last of the breakaway riders to be caught and Carlos Sastre riding well enough to move into third overall, directeur sportif Kim Andersen was more than satisfied with the outcome on Stage 6 of the Vuelta a España, which finished at the ski resort of Aramón Valdelinares.

"Piil did a fantastic stage, and if he'd only been able to hang on in there for one more kilometre, he would have been able to hang on during the last kilometre, which was more or less flat," said Andersen.

"The whole team actually did really well in this dramatic stage, which was fast-paced from beginning till end. All the time we had at least one rider up front and Carlos is now third in the GC, so anything is possible."
