Yeah! First race, first win. This morning after I got up and had put in a few meters on the bike, I knew that my legs were good. In the race itself there was no situation which we didn’t have under control. The guys were great. Max Schachmann, who was riding his first race for our team, did really well and convinced us with his good eye. And also Julian Alaphilippe put in a crazy performance underway. In the finale everything went to plan. The guys delivered me perfectly and I quickly realized that nothing was happening on my rear wheel. Great! I am totally happy about this debut. But actually it was just logical after both of my preparation tours ;-) The torture on the rear wheels of my teammates in training camp hast o be good for something.
This Tour is really perfect for sprinters to start the season with. And also for everyone who simply wants to gather kilometers. The weather is super, not too warm and not too cold. Today it was totally flat with two curves ;-) Tomorrow we go right along the sea. We will see whether the wind will play a role. But I think that there will be a sprint again. We will be in touch. Yours, Marci.
