At Home For The Tour

Hi BiciRace,

I'm home in Barcelona waiting for the final team selection for this year's Tour de France, but it looks like I'm out and that Patxi Villa will replace me. They want me to save energy for the Vuelta because we will have to do a great second half of the year to get some results. It's disappointing, but it's a tough game. I have trained hard these days looking forward to the Tour, but it won't be happening this year for me. I'll have to watch it from home. I don't really know if it's better watching it on TV or riding it. This year the heat is going to be intense. It's better to be on the couch with a nice beer.

Enjoy it!

Till next time, and a big greeting to all cycling fans...and web visitors.

Adios,
Juan Fuentes
