We have already come half way in the tour and for team Hitec it has been some good results so far!
First day was really hard because of the heat that met us when we arrived France. Over 35 degrees is hard when you come from colder conditions like we had in Norway last weeks!
But Hitec was good placed in the front and we had it quiet under control. In the fast and technical sprint I managed to get 3rd behind Teutenberg and Vos.
Yesterday double stages was on the programÂ with a TTT from 7,6km in the morning. 4th place and only few seconds from podium was good and we were happy. Some training on that type of races would make us so much better…
Yesterdays race in the afternoon was hard. Again from the heat and the active racing and in a bit over half way a group of ten riders got away. We had Lisa Brennauer in the break so we were happy and with her taking 3rd we had another podium place and she’s now 6th in the GC.
Today’sÂ stage is the tours hardest and we have 101km to do with 6 steep and hard climbs!
I’ll let you know what happens… and don’t forget to follow me on twitter! There the updates come more often and faster:)
