I have been bitten by the cycling bug from an early age and have been experiencing it from the front row as a signalman for twelve years. That I am not always able to watch the matches myself is something I am happy to do. It is especially nice to be able to contribute, you are a link in a long chain. But above all let us hope that we can quickly return to the course as it used to be, with everyone on the street, because that is the most fun thing about the whole thing. And if I can wish for something for this season, it is that Wout Van Aert, my favorite rider, will be the first to cross the line on April 4 in Oudenaarde.
