You’re a fine man & a champion athlete. You have shown that time & again. Last night was no different. You rode your own race … and a few others’ as well.
Tonight: the Alpe d’Huez. Tomorrow: the race of truth.
Marcus Burghardt said it best in a tweet after stage 4:
Today we saw what BMC Racing Team can do with 9 riders and 19 staff pulling for one goal
Now, there is a million-plus army clad in the black & red of BMC.
A whole country willing you on.
Your bella Chiara – her humour & grace beloved by all.
All pulling in the same direction.
One goal – to see you in the maillot jaune on the only road that matters … the Champs Élysée.
Two more efforts. Chapeau. Forza
