After the Amstel Gold Race I took a nice break, so we had some time to visit our family in Stribro. Unfortunately the weather was not so good so we had to move to the south. In Mallorca I have done some good trainings and I also had the opportunity to visit our bike rental 54x11.
Since Tuesday I am in California. I could visit the windtunnel at Specialized which was really great. Time trails have never been my thing, but it’s still a challenge to improve so we have been working on my time trail position and I will have the opportunity to test it here in the race.
Later today the first stage of the Tour of California will start. Most of the stages are flat, so obviously it will be all for Marcel Kittel here. For me it will be a good test of my condition after my rest period.
