It was ridiculous really. I had just won a major race despite not being in top form, yet I was going to dope.
I didn't care about goals or expectations any more, I was just determined to race my heart out.
If you're not at the front, you're not in the race.
Everything that's going on within the peloton - there's about ten different races going on. There is also a survival element to it - I love the fact that it's so epic. You crash on a bike, the first thing you do is try and get back up on it. No whinging!
