Back to Belgium

Hello everybody!

I am writing to you when I am almost on my way to the Ardennes, one of the most expected appointments of the season. I really hope to do it well over there. I will like always be surrounded by a great team. 

After participating in the Amstel, the Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, I will take some rest to recover.

The first part of the season was in fact excellent with my wins at the Vuelta a Andalucía, Vuelta a Murcia, Roma Máxima and GP Miguel Indurain. Each one of these victories is very special. I won the Vuelta a Andalucía for the third time. To win the Vuelta a Murcia at home surrounded by my family and my friends was also something very particular and for sure to be able to win in Estella when the squad had not been able to do it since 16 years was very special too. But I believe that my best victory till now was Roma Maxima. To win in Italy in a city like Rome meant a lot to me. 

Let’s now focus on the next three races where I also hope to do very well!


Let's go to Dubai

Hello to all my fans.

The season 2014 is really starting today for me as we flew to Dubai.

It is a first time as far as I am concern and I am very glad.

I hope to start the season in the best possible way.

I will come back to you my friends

See you soon!


My season 2013 just finished

Good evening everybody,

The Tour of Lombardy was the last trace of my season 2013. But I still will be present in several cycling events during the winter season.

On next Sunday I will be present at the Marcha ciclista Murcia; after that I will rest a little bit together with my family.

The last two weeks of the season in Italy were really intense with the world championships, the Giro of Emilia, the Tour of Lombardy and the presentation of the 2014 Giro d’Italia.

I want to thank all my fans for their unconditional support during the most beautiful but also the most difficult hours of the current season. Without you, nothing would be possible. Thank you with all my heart.  

See you soon,


Thank you with all my heart

The last day to send you text and win the back number 121 I wore during the last Tour de France was August 10. But we received so many texts that it requested time to copy them all to be able to present them in a PDF document you call download on this website. And we of course had to do that before publishing the result.

And for sure we also had to read them all to choose the winner! And this was really difficult. I would rather say impossible! Every text is indeed very special, written by a very  special people who put his heart in what he wrote. And each text reached my own heart. Some of them made me cry for all the emotion expressed in their words.

We received texts coming from many countries, from several continents, in English, in Spanish, in French, in Italian… All of them really beautiful for being written with the feelings of his or her author.

Thank you everybody, from the bottom of my heart.

I would have like to be able to give a number to each of the person who wrote to me and send a text but unfortunately I have only two and it was necessary to make a decision. But I want you to know that I really like them all.

Both winners will be informed very soon by email so that they can give us their home address and I can send him my signed number.

And now I shall focus on the Vuelta!

See you soon,


Sun, sea and family


Time goes by so fast! Between the Tour and the Vuelta, I spent a few days with my family at the seaside. But I all the same went on training every day.  It was nice to see my family and my friends and share some meals all together. We did nothing particular but it was nice to tale some rest and enjoy the sun, the sea and watch cartoons with the kids. We also visited an animal park. 

And now it’s time to focus only on the Vuelta!

See you soon

A big hug,
