From Valencia I leave the coast and take small dream roads through the mountains running parallel to the coast. An editor from BILD accompanies me into Barcelona. In Gerona I have an invitation to the hotel of triathlon legend Jan Fredeno. In the morning, Jan Fredeno, two other professional cyclists and the CEO of my sponsor Meetyou accompany me across the border into France. I spend the night in the house of my sponsor, who runs his company virtually from here. I cycle along the coast, through the Camargue. In the distance I can see the Pyrenees, now already covered in snow. It is slowly becoming winter. At night I feel really cold for the first time. In Avignon I meet Markus Weinberg, who accompanies me from here to Munich. We make a small diversions via the legendary Mont Ventoux. The road is already closed for the winter, but we can still get up easily by bike on the south side. At the top -1°, but with a spectacular view. The descent via the north side is bitterly cold.
