Vuelta al Pais Vasco: final results and more

Only 70 riders finished this very hard tour. Not Andy Schleck who retired yesterday after a mechanic trouble together with a lot of others.  Sum up it has been a very good result for him because we saw him riding every day better, climbing in front on hard climbs, working for the team and enduring racing in spite of the awful wether and the really demanding route. The coming-back isn't easy but he's demonstrating character in accepting all pain and criticism it involves. One day people say he should stop racing, the day after sell as a news he isn't a favourite in the next Tour de France. Fortunately he doesn't pay attention and keeps his focus on traing, racing, getting ready. He does his best and enjoys. It could sound crazy but he enjoys to be back racing even like that.    
Of course it isn't  fun when you feel pain because your injury isn't healed yet, when you are dropped in the rain, when you must face your fear in a descent and defeat the ghost of a crash you still feel in your bones. It isn't fun when people talk shit about you as if they know everything when they know nothing. But when cycling is your passion and your love you don't care. You are happy to be back on your bike in the peloton. It will take time. No matter. All he needs it's serenity and that's inside. I have never met anybody as aware of his own worth as Andy Schleck.

Yes Ilaria,

We can agree, "aware of his own worth" it's the way to
Describe Andy. And we like that!!! We are totally confident that he comes back!!!
