I’m finally on my way to Belgium. No sleep. One bike. Two sets of wheels. Plus some other stuff. I had this grand idea that I was going to start rotating my day forward and go to bed way early so I’d be close to European time. That didn’t work at all. Instead I went to bed at 2 am, which is 9 am in Belgium. I’m racing at 11:30 am on Saturday, so that is like 4:30am Topeka time. Whatever.
I rode the last two days in Kansas and can’t complain. I feel pretty good on the bike. At least as good as you can with all those clothes on.
I’m leaving Kansas City at noon and have a 3 hour layover in Washington D.C. from 3 to 6 pm EST. I get to Brussels at 7:45am their time. Hopefully I can sleep the whole way in First Class and not get caught up in all the food, movies, ect.
I’m staying at the course in a cabin. Seem pretty ideal. Hopefully it will be. I’ll try to update this as often as I can. You never know how easy it is going to be to access the internet in foreign countries.
Alright, I need to get driving the 80 miles to the Kansas City airport. It is super user friendly.
