Rest days are harder than race days.

Bear with me on this, okay. On rest days there’s constant stress with so many interviews and media requests, and if you throw in today's coronavirus test that took an hour, the day quickly evaporates. Mentally, it’s a lot tougher to do all these off-the-bike activities but, of course, physically it’s easier and the good thing is that I can do most of my rest-day 'work' from the comfort of my hotel bed.
