I am full in the Tour mood. The presentation yesterday was great. It feels good to pick up the fans’ enthusiasm. And our hotel is just about right where the finish is in two days. The anticipation is increasing every minute.
My goals of course is to be at the front in the sprints again this year. I want to win at least one stage. I expect tight sprints. The rivalry and the favourites in the bunch sprints is large. Many teams now have excellent sprint trains. We do too, of course. That is why we are going to the start with self-confidence.
Now I will relax a bit on the massage table and build up some strength with a short nap.
