8Â days and 37 hours.
Staying at Ty Derw, Emmas parents place has beenÂ great! Wounderful house, hostess and nature.
For training itÂ´s been perfect. Me and EmmaÂ got some really good long rides in the variated landscape and variated weatherâ€¦ Every day we have started our ride looking on the three elements, rain cold and wind – trying to stay positive!Â The day we did 4 hours in pouring rain andÂ terrible wind, the things we said to eachother was:Â â€œatleast itÂ´s not coldâ€ and “weÂ´re happy not to be a sheep today”
In the end we were very lucky as thatÂ day turned out to beÂ the only day with bad weather.
Overall Wales have been great, finally IÂ´m starting to feel like a rider again.Â Eight daysÂ ofÂ hard cycling have done good for my condition, I feel that all my power from the winters powertraining starts to transform into â€œcyclingpowerâ€.
Today IÂ´m back in Belgium and tomorrow itÂ´s time for another trainingcamp. This time itÂ´s closer to home and itÂ´s with my team.Â WeÂ´re doing the courseÂ of “Het Volk” and “Ronde van Vlaanderen”.
Seasone is coming closer, and I feel more ready than ever…
