After a very difficult day between the Municipality of Cota and the legendary climb, the Ecuadorian showed all his quality in the last climb and took second place in the fifth stage of the coffee round, beating Jonathan Caicedo (Petrólica) and Rodrigo Contreras (NU Colombia) . And third, respectively.

Egan Bernal (Colombia National Team) and Rigoberto Urán (EF Education First) were the two great entertainers of the stage, while Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) is still far from his best and has wasted a lot of time.

Once Carapaz crossed the finish line, he was asked by the media to whom he told about his victory: “Most of us knew how the climb was, how difficult it was… for us to take advantage of it. Team strategy. Other tools”.

Of the tactics used he said: “We had several options, but I told them I was in good shape.” Luckily for him and his team, he felt strong in the last kilometer and was able to execute the strategy perfectly. This is how he highlighted his work: “I struck the decisive blow that brought me to the goal.”

With still one stage left and 17 seconds separating one runner from the other, Chaves commented that Education First plans to try to close that gap to win the 2024 edition: “We need to get the lead. We will have to fight till the end.” Be a good platform.”
