Summary: It's getting scary out there.
This year it’s about survival.
Sure, Mark wants to win; he’s the best and he’s here to prove it, but the way things have been going on the Tour, he’s equally focused on protecting himself and his lead-out man.
It’s amazing how much they can get away with amidst the casual intimacy of the racing community. The post-race hugs and European-style kisses might look innocuous, but each touch is meaningful to him.
His nightmares start featuring slow-motion crashes and him cradling a bloodied Markieemark in his arms. He wakes up gasping, but determined.
They’re going to get through this together.
