Just over 3 years ago I was sitting with Eddy Merckx having an espresso at his house in Belgium. I asked which race he loved winning most & he said Paris-Rubaix. He said, "To win a race like that you have to train through the worst of days. You have to embrace the cold and rainy days. Those are the ones that make you believe you deserve the victory. And you cannot win until you know you deserve to."
Here's to a brutal Winter.
