Quick-Step rider Enric Mas was happy to take it a little easier in the second half of Tuesday's stage, with plenty of difficulties still coming up in the next days.

The 10th stage was affected by rain and the peloton seemed determined to make it to the finish as fast as possible, until it decided to slow down a little.

"It was a crazy stage, I think we did 95 kilometres in an hour and fifty minutes," he said. "We went at top speed the first two hours and then it calmed down a bit."

With Trentin taking the stage win, Quick-Step now has four victories in this race. "We are happy. We came here for that. We came here to win stages and with David (De la Cruz) as a leader. I think we're doing a good job and there are still many days to come.

"Today with the rain the legs weren't working as well as I wanted and I think this week is going to be very hard and the third week will be even harder so it was good to be a bit more calm today, so we can help David in what is coming."

Mas is honoured by the remarks of Alberto Contador, who labeled the 22-year-old as his successor.

"It makes me very happy. I am happy that riders like him and (Alejandro) Valverde say those kinds of things about me. So I have to keep working and train to be able to one day be the future of Spanish cycling. I love to be under pressure."
