Pre Race Jitters


After training and racing for a few years now, rarely do I get pre race jitters. I do for this one!

The great thing about having these feelings, it is a nice reminder that I still find racing is exciting. Racing overseas is even more exciting. New trails, new riders, lots of unknowns...etc.

Two more sleeps and we will be on a plane. 22 hours later we will have our feet down in Italy. Pick up our hire car, drive for 3 hours then meet up with our dear friends Rach and her mechanic, coach, pit biatch Shannon.

I am pretty sure I will be way to eager to ride the trails. So much so I reckon I will have to get on them the same day we arrive.

As a post race treat, my dear, sweet woman and I are travelling for another couple of weeks. One of the highlights will be getting into the mountains to watch some of stage 19 of the Giro d'Italia! AWESOME!

I have gone back and read some of my closing comments on previous blog posts. Humph! Nice little reminders of how I love to ride and race my bike.

Ciao Ciao...
