Résumé After 16 Stages

Here a small résumé after sixteen stages at the Tour de France. We having the second rest day now. The time flies by and I’ve just five more stages left to show myself. So far I’m not totally satisfied with my performance. I’ve tried several times to be in the breakaway but sometimes it was missing luck or timing. I actually still feel good, so I hope to be able to show it. The Alps gonna be a true spectacle with all the big climbs and with the GC guys attacking each other. I’m looking forward to the last hot and tough days in the mountains with many spectators on the road to Paris.

Stage 14 was luckily a bit cooler than the previous day’s. So I felt straightaway much better and tried my luck with the breakaway. Unfortunately the bunch chased us down and then when the next group went up the road I wasn’t in it. I was pretty pissed that missed that opportunity, because I felt really good. In the final I took it easy to safe my legs for the next stages, to try again to be in the golden breakaway.

Stage 11 was just another tough one. The first two hours flat out racing. I personally suffer quite a lot in the massive heat right now. I just hope it will cool down the next days… On the side we’ve our young man Emu Buchmann who got 3rd on yesterday’s mountain stage over the Tourmalet! Big talented boy! I’m also happy to see that Zak Dempster is still in the race after riding alone for mostly of the stage. More mountains coming up today.
