Carlos Rodríguez: “I also wonder about my future, it’s normal”

Carlos Rodríguez is about to complete his first Tour de France. In his fourth season with Ineos, the team with which he ends his contract this season, and at 22 years old. In his memory will remain his stage in Morzine and his fight until the last day for the podium, a drawer to which he still aspires. With his usual humility, he attends to AS.

In La Vuelta 2022, your first experience in a grand, last week you suffered from a fall. Now it’s different, how does it feel?

Well, the truth. Let’s hope it continues like this and nothing strange happens, that nothing happens, that it doesn’t harm me or any of us who are there fighting. I think I’m also a little tired like everyone else, it shows since it’s the third week, but hey, there’s not much left.

Do you know the route of today’s stage?

No, but I know it’s a pretty hard stage. Being the last day and with everything accumulated, it will be a day in which we cannot neglect ourselves at any time. Let’s hope we do well.

It is the first time that you have received so much attention from fans, the press… how are you doing?

All the support I am receiving is greatly appreciated. I take it as strength, not as any pressure and nothing, I will continue trying to defend this position or improve if possible.

Before arriving at the Tour, what goal did you set?

None. Just learn and enjoy because I didn’t know how I was going to be after the preparation couldn’t be the most ideal. It was somewhat short, although we did everything in our power. Being here is incredible, a real privilege and I hope I can continue at this level.

What was your worst moment? Because the best there are few doubts (victory at morzine).

Losing two teammates (Turner and Daniel Felipe Martiínez). I did not have a worse moment as such, I did suffer a lot, but the truth is that I am having good memories of this Tour.

And what has surprised you the most about the Tour?

Everything behind it. People tell you and you expect a lot, but the impact is incredible. All the people who follow him.

Do you get tired of constantly asking you about the future? (As AS learned, he has an agreement to sign for Movistar)

I think people are also interested and it’s normal. I also wonder about my future. When it is known and possible, something will be said.

How would you like to end the Tour?

I will try to do my best and whatever it will be. I have to be happy with the Tour that is starting and try to continue enjoying it until the end.
