Tour of Romandie
Back on the road in Romandie
Well Tour of Romandie is now underway with the Prologue done and dusted.
I went into the 3.5km race with high hopes of pulling off a good result, especially after last years 3rd placing but it was not to be and I could only manage 22nd place. Although only in 22nd place, I was still reasonably happy with my ride. My time was only 2-3 seconds off a top 10 finish and 5 seconds off a podium, so in a world class field like it is here, it wasn’t all bad.
It set to be a very hard and hilly race this year and is unsure if there will even be any ‘real’ sprint stages. So lets just hope I have my climbing legs on and can get over the hills and either get support from the team in the sprints or support Allan Davis who is in great shape and edging for a win.
From a different stand point, I have the pleasure of rooming with Fumi Beppu, our Japanese rider and he is an absolute champ! Its great to see some of the different traditions and formalities he follows. I’ve always said that other than Australia, Japan has, so far, been my favorite country in the world.
Until tomorrow folks.
