In the end, it’s incredibly hard to achieve,
to win all three Grand Tours, and do it on several occasions. The Eiffel Tower represents my victories
in the Tour de France. The Plaza de las Cibeles in Madrid, the capital. It represents the Vuelta a España. Then the Piazza del Duomo in Milan,
where the Giro d’Italia often ends. It’s a place where I have had some very special
moments wearing pink at the end of the race. And then Pinto, my city, the place where I grew up,
where I became a cyclist and a person. Then, well, there is also a phrase that I always carry with me
whenever I set a goal and I see that things are complicated, and that is, “querer es poder”
(where there’s a will, there’s a way). It is a phrase, a motto that I hold dear. I feel it is my own, so it is also on the bike.
