What a presentation. It is fantastic, the way we have we have been welcomed here on the island. The mood was sensational, with thousands of enthusiastic people. I still get goose bumps when I think about it. Great, that the race is about to start.
How did you like our caps? We were split on them. But they look good on us,don’t you think… ;-)
I was asked what I expect from this Tour. Whether I would win four stages again? Of course I want to win a stage here at the Tour. Of course I would like to celebrate again. But I don’t want to compare this Tour with last year’s. It is a totally new and different race. We all start from scratch. I am in good form and will give my all. And then we will see what happens.
