|The view from Sant Salvador|
|Sant Salvador Monument, where I rode with Ben.|
Hello! Sorry for the delay in updates, but internet is 20 euro a week at our camp hotel so for now I am skimping. That means I am without any sort of free time entertainment. I can't read cycling news or track world happenings or (most importantly!) blog. I'm going with plan B here, which is to type up a short entry on my blackberry and send it to my secretary (a.k.a. Lisa) to post!
After a busy day Thursday moving into our new apartment, I left Girona Friday morning for Mallorca. I arrived at the team hotel mid-afternoon, where I will be rooming with Sam Bewley for the next two weeks. The rest of the team trickled in throughout the afternoon and night, while I went for about 2.5 hours training with Ben King. It was a fun ride. We could see a large monument on a small mountain close by and decided we were going to try to find our way to it! We were rewarded with a pretty stellar view at the top, which you can see above. We then proceeded to circum-navigate our way back to the hotel, which was a bit of an adventure... we had to stop and ask for directions twice!
It feels good and exciting to be getting ready for my second season; although, it hardly feels like a year has passed. We've got 6 hours on the bike on tap for today. It is clear this morning with mostly blue skies. I guess that means I should sign off and get ready for training!
