Demol: "Tomorrow will make the classification"

Discovery Channel's assistant sports manager Dirk Demol also had a similar outlook to T-Mobile after yesterday's third stage of the Volta a Catalunya: "Tomorrow will make the classification. The last 45 kilometres has a big, big climb; at 40 km to go, there is a climb of 15kms and then the last 10kms are uphill," said Demol in a team statement.

On the team's leader, Yaroslav Popovych, who is currently placed eighth overall, at 10 seconds to Phonak's Miguel A.M. Perdiguero, Demol said: "For sure, we will try and find how Popo is tomorrow. He has worked very hard in training this year so far, and this race is his first competition since Paris-Nice, so we need to see how he is coming along."
