Actually I wanted to be at the start of the Strade Bianche in Tuscany today, but instead I am now in Paris. Because of the development of the Corona virus, all upcoming races including Strade Bianche and Tirreno-Adriatico have been cancelled or postponed. But Paris-Nice should take place as planned, with stringent hygienic procedures. I am glad that my team sent me to France on such short notice and that I can still race. So let's go on the way to "the sun"! Wish me luck! Yours, Maximilian.
