font romeu - day one


Its day one in Font Romeu, i got here yesterday night after 1350km of driving, I came with mister Krep that helped a lot during the 13h with a few stops of driving, here are some good examples of good entertainment i had (taking photos of Krep while he was sleeping), i think he slept half of the way here...





Early morning



Mid day



mid afternoon


Anyway we got here alright but krep is defenetely sharing the driving on the way back in around 3 weeks :D

Today was very calm, just a short ride and short swim to get the feel of the altitude, the rest of the week isnt very tough as well but week 2 and 3 will kick my butt.

i was glad to wake up in the morning and looking at the window with a great day...

Of course at the time im writing this im having severe thunderstorms alert but i think its just a few hours :P


The last month or so where spent at a maintenance threshold, fast workouts to try find some extra gear and indeed i found one. 3 sprint races from the national cup and a kind of 24h MTB race kept me busy and at racing speed.

I starded with an out of the first result page at the sprint in Peniche, got an 7th in the sprint of Oeiras, got 9th at the 24h race with no night riding and ended up in 5th at the sprint of abrantes last weekend, thats a good curve of improovement in speed, although speed and Sergio doesnt quite match.

more soon

Not fun... no time to visit the friends in Font Romeu, but it would have been nice :)

Beijinhos e bons treinos!

It sounds like you guys are going to sleep, eat, train, eat, nap, train, eat another time, sleep for 21 days.

I read the dictionnary and this isn't the definition of "FUN".

Have a good training camp and have fun!
