A special and sometimes very challenging year has ended. Of course, like everyone else, we cyclists had many uncertain moments, and often didn't know whether races would take place or not until shortly beforehand. But the safety procedures worked out, many of the biggest races took place and at the Tour de France I crossed the finish line in Paris for the first time. Sure, the crash at Lombardia, in which I broke my collarbone, was very bad luck, but overall 2020 was a very successful year for me, with my win at Paris-Nice a very special success. This and many many more big moments will come in 2021! I am ready, am in the middle of my preparations for the new season, have big goals and look forward to another year in the BORA-hansgrohe jersey. I wish you all the best in 2021! Yours, Maximilian.
