Its raining like crazy...
Britain Day #1
I’m here. Its raining, its cold, however I’m still super excited. What better way to end the season by racing some of the worlds best?
My flight over was super chill. I had more excitement at the check in booth than I did the whole flight.
FYI---if your flying on United Airlines and your check in bag is over 70 pounds it’s a whopping $350 bucks each.
Anyways, did a ride today in the rain on my new bike. Back home I was riding a size 56 which I felt was way to big giving the angles. So they got me a 53cm frame that fits like a glove. I love it!!
So tomorrow another 3 hr ride and Sunday is the big show.
Fast forward to Saturday, I woke up with a very bad sore throat and I hope its going to get better soon. So anyways we did a nice, fast 3hr ride in the Belgium like weather. Got a little more comfortable with the new bike and tomorrow is the big show.
This reporter from GQ Italy did a photo shoot and an interview with me and he said one thing that shocked the hell out of me. He said..." you are considered a possible stage winner here tomorrow, how does that make you feel"?
That’s crazy, it’s my first real race here in 3 yrs and people are saying I'm one of the guys to look out for. I’m getting butterflies just typing this.
I hope tonight my sleep will be much better and ill wake up well rested.
Im not going to pay the $20 dollar internet fee everyday s, i hope the next hotel has free internet so I can keep you all updated.
