Q&A with Sacha
What animal best describes you?
A Labrador. Because they're happy dogs, funny, carefree.
What would you be if you weren't a professional cyclist?
I think I would have done something completely different, not in sports. I like fixing old motorbikes, vespas, lambrettas. I think I would have been a mechanic.
The one thing you can't travel without?
Music. On my phone or iPod.
What advice do you have for someone traveling abroad?
Venice, because it’s a place that’s close to my hometown and it’s a romantic town. It's where I asked my wife to marry me.
What’s your favorite music to play before a race?
Queen, Freddie Mercury
What's your dream vacation?
I just did it! I was two days in Los Angeles and 15 days in Bora Bora. That was my dream vacation.
