Sunny Africa my love! Here I come!
Sitting in Gatwick on my down to SA for the Tour de Boland, Giro del Capo and of course the Argus after a lovely week in Spain. Although training was not the best due to some cool photo shoots and my leg still nagging me (more in my mind than anything else) I am looking forward to the early trip home.
Just hopped across the channel chatting to a Saffa Expat, chatting all the way and loving every moment of it. Amusing how the most arbitrary trips can end up being become something special cause of a good chat!
I just love the way things turn out

Late Morocco Pic

I was just sent a few pictures from the African Champs in Morocco, back in November last year.
Unfortunately I still don't have any photos from the actual contact with my dear Moroccan friend, but at least I now have this pic. Notice how close to the line and to the banners he is ;)
Thanks Theresia.

Chilly Times

Training in the UK has not been quite as bad as I had expected. Which means that I have actually been able to train as opposed to sitting in the house all day sulking.
Somehow my body seems to have acclimatised to a reasonable extent and I have been out and about in three degrees with snow covered fields and freezing toes and fingers. That means the rides have not been as long as they would have been back home and I'm nervous to find out how that works out down the line.
At least the team's off to Spain again soon, so we'll get in some more miles there and I hope to have a bit more power than the last time we were there.
For now I'm just happy to be healthy and in a good mindset concerning the cold. Fun and games!
