Great mood at the German movie premiere2014-11-18
There was a sold-out house yesterday for Tony Martin, Marcel Kittel and me in Erfurt. Over 500 people joined us in the large theater in the Cinestar to watch the film "Nieuwe Helden". Seeing it now at the start of the season was another great motivation. The enthusiasm in the theater was really unbelievable. For a long time it was unthinkable that so many people in Germany would want to see a film about cycling. And even the following autograph session took a long time. I had the feeling that the entire audience wanted an autograph or a photo with us.
Of course I already knew the film but it made clear to me once again what nonsense one speaks all day ;-) Often we weren’t ever aware of the camera any more, and that just made it all the more authentic. A great evening with a knowledgeable public.
