Holiday in Barcelona and Athlete of the Year voting2014-10-22
It looks like I left just in time, when I think of the weather in Germany. This afternoon my wife Laura and I got off to Barcelona, where the weather is significantly better. We will relax here for a few days.
Before leaving, of course I took a look at the course for the Tour de France 2015. After missing my chance this year, next year again offers the chance to shine on a cobblestone stage. It is not as difficult as this year’s stage, but still... But as I said, first of all, recovery is the thing right now.
I have done as good as no sport the last few days. At our fan day in Holland we were together as a team, but we used the time to spend more time talking to our fans than we usually have at sign-in, at the bus or along the course. A lot of fans took advantage of the opportunity and chatted with us, took photos or got an autograph. These are great events that let us have contact with the fans.
By the way, I can only recommend that you use a Car2Go in Frankfurt. I used them today to get to the airport (photo). It is cheaper than a taxi and quite simple. You give up your car near the terminal, basically drive yourself to the airport. I can really recommend it.
I need your vote again, to defend my title as Athlete of the Year in Frankfurt. It would be great if we could get the title again. If you enjoyed my season, then I would be glad to have your vote.
