Slovenian assumes after the fall of companion

Aldo Ilešič was not expecting to cross the finish line first. The Slovenian Type 1, who finished third stage in 83 th place, was only set for Kenneth Hanson team be the winner. However, less than 3km from the end of the race, the companion suffered a fall and Ilešič took the edge of the field.

- This was a step that should be easy, but it was not. We suffered a lot with the wind. Having a big crash with 30km logo is not good. The intention was that Kenneth won, but he declined, so I assumed. Definitely, I will keep a good memory here. Still want to go to the beach today - joked Slovenian.

Thrilled with second place in Cabo Frio, Fabiele Mota arrived crying after receiving the prize on the podium. The rider team Santos lamented just an accident with his teammate who could lead him to victory.

- I'm bringing to the end, but then just saw two guys next to me and it is little. The Cuban my team, that should help me, fell. Lacked a little of that team play. So today hit the crossbar - he said.

Third place, France Carlos won confidence with good results in Cabo Frio. For the rider of Ribeirão Preto, no hope of returning to the podium final.

- Tomorrow we will have a more flat stage, so I'm sure that we Brazilians in the first places. We are well prepared for this - concluded.

Italian is confident of title

It was the first time that Tomas Alberio not come in the top three in the Tour of Rio, however, kept his promise to continue with the yellow shirt and green yet. The Italian is with 18s to lead the American Christopher Jones.

- Today was not a good day, because I was in fourth. I have back pain and knee due to the fall. I thought I would go there, but the staff really encouraged me. I'm sure I will win - he said.

    • Kerala (India) is amazingly green and has great beaches - abt 4.5 hour flight.

      Turkey has areas that are green, hilly - cold in winter anyway - 4 hour flight.

      Both of these two destinations can be done pretty cheaply.
