_Q&A

Your favourite race and climb?

Giro di Lombardia is my favourite race. And favourite climb is La Barrerilla here close to my home.

Your best or most memorable result in pro cycling?

Giro d’ Italia 2017. After a crash I lost my options on the GC so I had to fight every day to find a motivation. It was such a challenging mission.

What are the pros and cons of being a blockbuster name in cycling?

You have more responsibilities and pressure, but you are able to do it.

You’ve got a degree in Architecture. As a cyclist traveling the world, which country impresses you the most?

The best of traveling is that you see a lot of different places and finally you find your own house as the best. I really like Basque country structure.

How different is it being a GC rider from a super domestique? 

Definitely you have more pressure and responsibilities.
