crossed the finishing line, he was very happy with the result "we wanted to be ahead from the beginning and we have achieved it." Milton has gone home with a few minutes but thanks a great job my and Roberto have managed to advance it. "I'm very happy to get the Red Jersey with me and being leader". But he also warned: "everything is still wide open".
