Tony Martin is a machine. No one spends more time on the front of the peloton than Der Panzerwagen. He cranks out his turns in the wind with metronomic efficiency and never seems to tire. He is the key man in Team Jumbo Visma’s lead out. His time-trial routine is like clockwork. The thing is—he isn’t a machine. He is just a really nice guy who works very hard to do his job well. Every morning, gets up and does his best. He is meticulous about his equipment and his training. It’s no wonder he is having such a long and successful career.
