In the middle of the journey #1

First stage, from Nice to Nice. The start of my third Tour de France after 2017 and 2019 editions, both completed in Paris: for me it's a great opportunity, I will do my best to honor my team. The first stage has been very insidious due to slieppery roads. We preferred not to attack and to avoid excessive risks, Tour de France is just begun.

The second day we got up in Nice again, we a range more and more difficult for the altitude profile. Rank in the top ten today, on such a tough stage of Tour de France, is a great satisfaction. Moreover I was able to help Rigoberto Uran and Sergio Higuita in the final, I feel good, now I look forward to tomorrow...
