Left the rain and cold in Switzerland on Wednesday to Lisbon. Caught up with quite a few of the guys from previous years over a meal that night and relived old tales.
The bus ride up to Braganca on Thursday and we were actually on time. Yes thats me giving a V for victory...(with a new haircut)
Friday has been a fairly chilled day and we've done the usual briefings and had GPS lessons. Put the bike together and no major dramas. Feeling fairly relaxed and taken the bike out for a bit of a blast. Great to see all the staff and be part of a big family.
Weather looks hot dry and dusty. Expecting 30 degrees and sunshine.
The competion? Well who knows...lots of tanned skinny looking people and big legs is always a bad sign for me. But hey the Fast Portuguese guys have been talking about me and Danny and we've talking about them so I guess that's good.
I'll ride my own race and not be intimidated. If I feel good I'll stick it out and if not well, I won't disgrace myself.
Tomorrow from 9am we will know.
