A weekend of catching up with the cycling world again was good for me.
My visit at the Swedish Bike Exhibition (Svenska Cykelmässan) made me realize how far away I have been from that world for a while now, and also how much I miss it.
And even though my belly is very pointy at the moment and my legs looks like they have never seen a bike, I still feel like home when I enter that world.
Not only did I bring good memories and new contacts with me back home… My parents met up in Stockholm and will spend a week with me back home in Norway while Martin is away again. He has a two-week period of races with the Mitchelton Scott team that he is working for and won´t be back until after the Ronde Van Vlaanderen.
Nice to have some good company that can keep my mind on something else when this belly is really starting to annoy me now…
On top of that one of my absolute favorite race is also coming up. The Ronde!
I can´t help but loving that one and this year is the first year since 2006(!) that I won´t even be there.
To keep myself busy and to keep up the spirit I´m already making plans for next year:
A spring period in Belgium like usual is what we will do and I´m already looking forward to it.
I feel it is important for our “little one” to get to know the country that both me and Martin love so much. And also for me of course, to finally breath some cobble air again 🙂
