He is so good that there was a controversy last year over whether there were motors hidden inside his bike. People claimed that no one could be that fast without help. They x-rayed it and didn’t find anything.
Fabian grew up just outside the Bern, the Swiss Capital. When we visited Bern, they informed me that there is a bridge named for him in his hometown. He is, without a doubt, the biggest name in Swiss cycling. When the Tour de France goes to the east side of the country for the time trial on July 23, I am sure that a lot of Swiss will go to cheer him on. He stands a good chance of winning that day’s race.
