This is the 4th time Alberto has been awarded it and probably not the last.
Alberto has raced over 10,000km this season including 20km with a fractured tibia. His determination and perseverance throughout the year was second to none. The Tinkoff-Saxo rider’s meticulous preparation for 2014 during the off-season has evidently paid-off with a total of 9 victories and 19 top 3’s, the biggest victory of course being La Vuelta.
