    What exactly was wrong with kittel last year? was there any one specific cause?

      Mostly illness, but some of it was in the head too.

      Cyclists can cause themselves major problems when they try to come back from illness too hard and/or too early. It’s quite common for a rider who falls sick early in the year to do that and end up trashing their whole season because they are so poorly supervised by their team when they are not at a training camp or race. Other riders who have done that in recent years included Marianne Vos, Richie Porte and Simon Gerrans.
