One Lap Down

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

Only 4 hours at the Brussels Airport today. Still no bag which means still no bike.

But, I do have a bicycle to ride now. I picked up Trudi and Jurgen (BMC mechanic and Service Course manager), who both flew in from the BMC training camp in Valencia, Spain.

Long story short, I have a BMC ‘ cross bike that sort of fits. 11-speed Campy.

It was an hour and a half back to Mol through Antwerp. We stopped and had dinner (the first meal I’ve eaten since landing) and got back to the cabin a little after 10.

So, I adjusted the seat, messed with the brakes some and went for a ride on the course. Mainly for peace of mind.

It was nice. Full moon. I got back a little after midnight. So much for getting on the right time.

I’m crossing my fingers for my bag. I don’t have the proper clothing to ride in and I really need my own bike. But, today is the highlight of the trip, by far.

    You da man! It will be what it is, but a moonlight ‘cross ride in Belgium, on a bike delivered from unexpected friends, may be the memory you keep with you for all time. Good luck and be well!
