Silver City: Jan 15th
Silver City, NM J
an 8th – Jan 22nd
It turns out today wasn’t an off day- it was two hours easy. But it’s just the same, 2hrs easy or off. After riding this much, spinning for 2 hours is practically the same as not spinning at all.
Jonathan and the Europe crew depart today- Jonathan for Denver and the Europe crew to Gerona. Ben Turner, the team manager, will handle the control of the camp from today until we depart for Europe.
After lunch Jonathan scheduled meetings with everyone, and it sounds like I’ll be coming back from Europe to do the Tour of California barring any illness or injury. I’ll stay in the US after that until the Tour of Georgia. The post Georgia race schedule is still under construction.
On a different note, I came to the training camp with long hair… and… I was accosted while I was brushing my teeth. Someone knocks on the door and Frank, my room mate, lets them in, and the entirety of the team comes trooping in with an electric hair cutter. They got me and, well, let’s just say the hair is about a centimeter long now. But it’s more aerodynamic and much lighter in the mountains.
