No rhythm in the time trial

No rhythm in the time trial

After the hard ride on Monday and the rest day on Tuesday today was the eleventh stage of the Tour of Spain on the program. A 38-kilometer time trial in and around Tarazona was the next command. “I had the idea that my time would be a disaster during the time trial, but actually it was not too bad.”

“I had a terrible night and would therefore ‘take it easy’ during the time trial, also to save some energy for the next coming days. “During the climb I never found my rhythm and I felt that I was standing still. But my time was not too bad.”

During the time trial teammate Kevin De Weert had a big crash and broke his collarbone. “I feel so bad about it. He was working so hard and doing his job for 100%. He was the hardest worker in his Vuelta. We will miss him and I hope we see him back again soon!”
