After seven years of trying I have walked away with a stage win and KOM!
Starting off with the high of finishing the opening stage the TTT in 2nd place the team had very high hopes for the rest of the tour and where amped for the bluff hill climb, A few hours later that day the team was rocked with a crash 10km to go , dashing all our hopes of a high gc placing, from then on we work hard as a wolf pack to 1st of all make it safely through the rest of the tour while trying to get into the race and be apart od the racing and try and give it to the bigger named teams,
