Good morning. First of all, thank you very much for the congratulations. Unfortunately, now i dont have enough free time to answer all the questions coming, but Im sure will do it later.
At the fifth stage of the last 350 meters became crucial in the fight for the victory. After dinner we celebrated the success of a glass of champagne. For more we didnt have any force, nor time.
At present the situation in a normal race. I keep in a group of leaders, who shared the small difference in time. And, despite the fact that the fifth stage was difficult and important, the main battle will begin with the 12th stage, opening the most important part of the race.
I think, that Ivan Basso is my main opponent. Levi Leipheimer is strong too, but highlight all the same Italian. With regard to the current leader Di Luca, he also looks very worthy, but most likely hell have at least one crisis day. Lance Armstrong left the list of favorites for overall victory.
In general, everithing is going according to plan, I expect a decisive battle.
See you, Denis
