Yesterday was a lovelly spring day with 20 degrees and sun. The blue sky and the dryÂ cobbles made the Ronde van FlanderenÂ to a very nice race. For me and my team it was an successful day.
My job was to help the best girls in the team, and I did all I could for them… includning giving away my lastÂ bottle in the heatness. Just before KapelMuur (which is the hardestÂ hill with cobbles 20 km from the finish)Â I went down to the car and got water forÂ my teammatesÂ and then I made sure that our best climber (Sofie Goor)Â was sitting in the front. When I sawÂ that she was already sitting thereÂ I knew that I couldnÂ´t do anything more for her and I could finish the race in the second group.
Sofie finishedÂ 9th andÂ maybe now my teamsÂ luck have turned… “knock on wood” 😉

Drenthe is coming up next, so on wednesday IÂ´m going “home” to Hoogeveen (stayed there for four months in 2005).
Thursday and SundayÂ will be 1.1 races and then on theÂ Saturday it will be a World Cup.
See you in Drenthe…
