Honestly, I think I was born with it! I am so fortunate to make my living doing the thing I love: riding my bike.
For me it is a form of relaxation, even when it challenges me. I love the freedom I feel when I ride, enjoying the landscape and the fresh air. But, most of all I like the feeling I get from the effort I make, each day. This is very satisfying.
Everyday. I never miss a day. A lot of the riding I do is for work, but it is also necessary for me personally.
Without a doubt it was the victory at the Olympics in Seoul, that will always be an incredible and a “once-in-a lifetime” memory. But, of course, riding the Tour de France was also a highlight.
