Miguel Angel Lopez of Astana Pro Team is happy with the way things are progressing for Fabio Aru and himself at the Vuelta a España.

The rider finished seven seconds behind most of the other GC favorites in the 13th stage of the Spanish grand tour.

"The finish was very hard, and we didn't expect it to be like that," the Colombian said. "We thought it was going to be a normal sprint finish. At the end it was a sprint but in a very small group and the directors had already told us that it was going to be very hard.

"Now we think about tomorrow and luckily today was a very good day. We go day by day."

Lopez is feeling confident about his own chances and those of his teammate Aru, who won the Vuelta in 2015.

Fabio is very well, you can see him very strong. Surely tomorrow and the last week, the race will be very entertaining because of him and because of me. And what is important is that the legs are feeling very good."
