A warm welcome to Cyclingnews' newest blogger, Sergio Higuita (EF Pro Cycling).  Sergio is wearing the Colombian champion's jersey as he rides his first Tour de France at the age of 23, and in his first blog he tells us what it means to him to be here.

The Tour de France is a dream come true for me.

It's a dream that began when I was 11. It was 2009 when I first came across the Tour de France on TV, Astana were there with Contador and Armstrong, and I vividly remember those bikes they were riding when they won the team time trial.
