We are their super helpers. We are there to execute that last percentage of work that only few can do. Except Chris does his job at the top of big mountains, while I do mine on the flats, 400 meters from the finish line. The rest of our teammates play key roles, but we are the last buffers before the maximum points. It’s Chris Horner time.
