From the three Giro’s that I’ve started and finished in my career, I know that this race isn’t about the challenges that are obvious on paper. There are always some hidden climbs, technical villages and sneaky small roads that seem to pop out of nowhere and throw some complications into the already demanding profiles and stage distances.
The past three weeks have been all about building for the race season. Most of my teammates have raced at this point, but not me.
Arriving at my first 2019 Mitchelton-SCOTT training camp felt a bit like the first day of school or maybe even more like waking up in someone else’s house and trying to make breakfast in their kitchen.
