Galdeano praises 'best climber in the world'

Euskaltel manager Igor González de Galdeano was as pleased as anyone with Antón breathtaking win atop the Monte Zoncolan yesterday. The former rider and yellow yersey rider has stood by his charge through thick and thin and paid tribute to his protégé in today's El Correo. "I've always said Igor Antón is the best climber in the world", he wrote confidently in the team's daily column during the Giro. "He's better than Alberto Contador. I have to admit though that the Pinto native is the more complete rider of the two. Let's see how far he can go in this race. As of yet he hasn't lost any time and is third overall, just a single second off Nibali. If we do things right all the way through we might end up on the podium. That would be the icing on the cake of a great May".
