Mallorca now for 5 days and have very quickly realized why this is such an amazing and popular place to train for pro's and amateurs alike. The weather since we've arrived has been more/less ideal. Nothing crazy hot but not snowing either and I haven't had to much as looked at a set of rollers so that alone has made for a great time!
14km beast of a climb but even as I was beginning to taste blood I was able to look around and take in some of the best views I've ever seen... Unfortunately reaching for my iphone for a quick shot was not in the cards as I was on high alert for one of the many pending attacks from my teammates! Thanks boys. I guess I'll just have to come back down here again to get the pictures...damn..
Other notables from T.R.M.t.c.
-my bike, I am happy to say is totally awesome! Not only does it look good but it goooooes faaast.
- buffets are a dangerous thing after 5+hrs on the bike or before 5+hr ...actually buffets are just a dangerous thing for cyclists in general..
- Mallorca is a "hot spot" destination for seniors in the off-season. outside of our team I think the average age of the hotels guest's is roughly post mordem minus a day...
- We lost Kiwi Tom for a little bit on yesterdays ride but soon realized what had caused the delay..
-I'd like to give a quick shout out to Giro for hooking me up with the most comfortable shoes I've ever strapped on! It's going to be a great year with these babys on my feet.
-I have a hell of a long way to come in the legging tan department! Damn Aussie sumer!
- I'm rooming with one of our 2 French riders, Eric Bertheu and as of yet I have not learnt a single word of French from him, though I must admit it is incredibly respectful of these guys to speak predominately english when around other anglo's, Merci!...season goal=learn more french.
I have no clue what the game plan is for the next 5 days but I have high hopes and no doubts that I'll be leaving here with a grin ear to ear.
I'll do my best to get some more shots while I'm out there for the next post...so much to do here...
