It's officially the night before my first ride onto the Champs-Elysées. I'm trying to be excited, but I have to admit that the exhaustion is winning at the moment. The last two stages have been anything but easy. Friday we had a dry start but then 180km in the rain and wind. It was not the day many were hoping for, that's for sure. I fought to hang on until the final climb, but that was all I could muster. Between the physical exhaustion in my body, mental exhaustion in my head, and extreme discomfort coming from TRYING to find a comfortable spot to settle myself on my saddle, I've run out of energy. For the tt today I tried to push, but my body was in complete protest. This whole experience has been a true test for me. I know it is going to make me a stronger rider, so I'm trying to just look at the positive side of things. I know all the anguish will be forgotten in a moment when I cross the finish line tomorrow and get the loving embrace of Lisa. It will be a celebration for both of us. And our team will have a celebration for a good Tour with Haimar riding himself to 8th overall. It's been a challenging but rewarding race. Once again thanks to everyone for your continued support and cheers. Ciao.
