Paris-Nice: Stage 7. Contador “finished”
Antonio Colom (Team Katusha) was one of the most aggressive riders in the finale, netting him second place on the day. “I tried several times to get away from the break group, but they always brought me back. Then Sánchez countered and the others didn’t follow him.” Once he knew Sánchez would stay away, he changed tactics. “I concentrated on the sprint for second. I have a slight cold and yesterday I had some bronchial problems, but today I was feeling much better.”
Colom moved up to sixth and is 2:16 behind Sánchez in the GC. “I hope to be just as good in the final stage tomorrow,” he said.
