Interview Thomas Frei – Christina Watches

Pin It

Took me just a few tweets to get in touch with extra polite Thomas Frey, former Astana and BMC rider from Switzerland.

Thomas is about to play big role in Christina Watches team. They will try to save Stefan Schumacher’s yellow jersey.

Bringing to you our little chat before stage 3**. I’m at home, following #TourdeSerbie on twitter and @thomasfrei is out there on the rough Serbian roads.

**These is Frei’s short update from stage 3 
Team rode perfect today. First real test for me as well. Alex was all day in the Break and came over the last Hill. Myself i attaked at the Botom of the 7 km climb with headwind. Baliani had to chase until he blow up. Then 1km befor the top Schumi and Michael past me with a few others. So work was done then. Schumi won. Leader jersey means a lot more work for next days. I know now my shape is good! Tomorow lot of  work in the hills!
