Valverde can win says Pereiro

Caisse d'Epargne rider Oscar Pereiro has said that he will forget any personal ambitions of a stage win in order to pave the way for his team-mate Alejandro Valverde to take the Vuelta title in Madrid this coming Sunday.

"I will be riding for my team. Today and tomorrow will be a lot of work. Yesterday, Alejandro was very strong and for us, it is important to work for him now. I think that with just three big days left he is a very possible winner in Madrid, so the morale on the team is very good now."
