Miguel Angel Lopez thanked his teammates for their work in the 15th stage of the Vuelta a España, allowing the Astana rider to take his second stage victory.

Lopez attacked along with Trek-Segafredo's Alberto Contador and later launched a second attack to drop the Spaniard and Romain Bardet, who at that point formed part of the group as well.

"It has been a magnificent day with all the work of the team. The team has been at a top-level and I couldn't fail them," the Colombian said.

"Today we decided to attack with (Alberto) Contador, when he attacked I went ahead with him. I had my doubts because I knew the climb was very long and difficult. But at the end I had enough strength and here I am."

Although Lopez did the last part by himself, he was well protected by his team coming into the final phase of the stage.

"With the team we planned the stage today and thanks to the team's work, to Fabio (Aru) and to all the other teammates who have always been supporting, today has been a magnificent day."
