I do not even want to imagine how it will happen in the high mountains in the coming days. On Sunday, it was really terrible and I have never known anything like it during my career - it was the worst day.
My biggest fear is not to be in good spirits on the bike. But I also know that these are inevitable moments on a Grand Tour, the choke points. I learn simply to hurt.
U23 world champion Arnaud Demare is finding his first Grand Tour experience more than a little tough.
