Professionalism is a concept that – as we speak – doesn’t apply to Enough. Other than in one specific case. I’m talking about drinking here. In that we will hold up fairly well even with the masters on the field. We therefore asked Marco and Mattia to receive the same treatment they deserve to Team Ineos. They kindly declined the offer, but they managed to give us all we needed not to be thirsty to death. Moreover: they provided us with all the necessary for traveling and training during bad weather days.

(they put in the package some of those wonderful sachets of chamois cream as well, which is something long distance cyclists quickly learn to appreciate as much as their paycheck coming in)
