Trans Portugal Day 9

Last day, kinda frustration one...

All started with a flat at 4km in a downhill. Too soon. I changed as fast as i could and started pedaling like hell. the stage wasnt too bad in the begiing and i was in MDK mode. I was closing the lead group and had the information that they where working together.
I felt good legs and was pushing very hard to get there. at km 75-80 i finally had a glimpse og the lead pack and at the same time F$###$ another flat. Damnit!!! i lost the mojo. and after repairing the second time i cruised the rest of the way (knowing that i was safe at 3rd). Enjoying some Sightseeing of Sagres. i was bummed to be so close to get them and loosing it. more than the 4 flats in the first stage :(

Anyway, it is done. I absolutely loved the Experince great athletes great staff great race, super tough courses. ill come up with my numbers next.

now its back to full triathlon mode
