Yes. Finally. The stage win at @letourdefrance Still feels great this morning. 😀 This win was a very emotional one for me after having not this much luck in the past two years. But most important: This is a win of the whole @treksegafredo team. A great day for all of us. I’m happy and proud to be part of it. And last but not least: a big big THANK YOU for all the messages that reach me on all channels - it‘s also your support that pushes me again and again. Danke #dege#dgnklb#tourdetfs#tdf2018#tdf#trek#bontrager#fabiancancellara#parisroubaix#treksegafredo
Sensações indescritíveis ontem no @letourdefrance, etapa que a chegada aconteceu em #roubaix e por consequência passagem pelos sectores de paralelepípedo. Foram 500km (ida e volta) da minha casa e os caras passam em alguns 3 ou 4 segundos, mas só posso dizer uma coisa: "é foda demais!!!". Agradecer a minha parceira no dia a dia que me proporcionou realizar um sonho antigo, obrigado Rê. 😀
Rest day. Time to re-stock and get ready for the next phase. The perfect day for the shop to go live on pelotan.cc // To celebrate, every customer between now and the next rest day will be entered into a draw to win a limited edition Pelotan x @isadoreapparel jersey ☀️🚲
9ème étape du Tour de France, avec un beau départ sur la place d’Arras, et un passage sur les secteurs pavés de Paris-Roubaix, ça secout et ça fais de la poussière !!!! Place à la journée de repos, après la finale, bien sûr!!!
Carnage on stage 9 @tourdefrance2018 ! Do you think the grand tour peloton should be racing on these roads?? ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ Most of the favorites for the Tour did well, finishing together just 27sec down from the winning break, but many of them hit the deck during the stage. I didn’t mention about the technical skill of riding these roads in yesterday’s post but you could see some discrepancies today in the skills within the pack. As well, the bigger men can power across the cobbles easier than lighter riders. Some who may never have raced the cobbles before were fighting side by side with a handful of the men of the classics and chaos ensued. So many times riders crashed taking corners too fast and you could see that there was an extreme nervousness in the peloton all day. I’d love to hear your thoughts on whether you think a course like this should be included in the Tour?
@lukedurbridge normally has free reign at Paris Roubaix to chase the victory, but today he was all about ensuring Yates didn’t lose time and he delivered with a great ride. The team aspect of cycling is a beautiful thing and to see sacrifices within the group shows a great bond and commitment to each other. For example, if you like at Luke’s file for today it gets a little funky after halfway because he finished the last 80km on his teammate’s, Damien Howson’s bike with a saddle 2cm too low!
Numbers for the Tour so far! Tomorrow is the first test day so wrapping up the first 9 days we have (including warmups/cool downs):
39h33m riding time
12,813m elevation gain
Give @lukedurbridge a shoutout for sharing his files with us!
you know the most famous showers in the world of cycling? there is a place which looks like his time is long gone, faded and decayed. but one time a year this place is the hot spot of cycling, the attention of the whole world on itself, writing history again and again. since the year 1896 startet by german Josef Fischer. this year the #hellofnorth takes place two times. Mister @johndegenkolb was the second german in 2015 shining at the #pavee and today he wone @letourdefrance stage at this historic place. Welcome to #parisroubaix grateful that I was allowed to witness that. today on the #oval of the old #velodrome where @petosagan wone early this spring the #mobiltoilet was parked...
