My granddad took to me to a post-Tour criterium when I was 4 years old. Bjarne Riis was racing after returning from the Tour de France. After the criterium, Bjarne had loads of people around him. My granddad picked me up and walked through the crowds to get to him. I was wearing a yellow t-shirt and my grandad asked him to sign it. It’s 21 years ago but I can still remember everything from that day. That’s my first Tour de France related memory. So, when I found out I was going to the Tour de France for the first time in my career this year, I can’t describe the feelings. I was out training when I got the call. Dirk Demol is the director I report to...

I want to win a race this season.
