“Chris had a stronger 2018 than I think he could have ex­pected. He had a re­ally tough year with his case; along­side the pub­lic re­ac­tion in France that was not the best for him. But to come from win­ning the Giro to try­ing to win his fifth Tour and fourth con­sec­u­tive Grand Tour and the dou­ble for me was, like, wow. I saw some­one who was re­ally de­ter­mined. You need to have this char­ac­ter to ride at this level for so long, not only phys­i­cally but men­tally as well. I don’t know if it was his big­gest year in terms of re­sults but from an achieve­ment point of view, to set ev­ery­thing up early for the Giro and to main­tain it was un­be­liev­able.”
