Time to write again as there is excitement on the training and racing front!
But back to the beginning....
As it might be difficult to follow my whereabouts:
Hello from Melbourne, Australia!
G`day, Ow ya goin mate!
I hit ground three weeks ago. Last year when I visited Brisbane I knew that Australia is a fantastic place to work, race and breathe. I just had to make a long nine-months stopover in Switzerland. But now I am back and not planning on leaving again.
Melbourne is just amazing. Friendly, welcoming people. Huge cycling scene. Fantastic coffee....what else is there left to enjoy life?
Inspired by the sports-fanatic Aussie culture, I also did my first criterium after an eternity. Despite the long time-out I was quickly reminded how painful those are!
With so many motivating groups to train with, my racing calender filled up quickly. After a nine months racing hibernation, I am excited to get back into shape and focus on new racing goals.
|What can I say! That was the view of one of the rides (when I wasnt staring at the rear wheel of the person in front of me)|
|First race after three years. I promise there were more people in the race than pictured here.|
