Tour of Qatar – Chinese New Year

This entry was posted in Racing on by .

The Tour of Qatar begins tomorrow, Sunday. Trudi and the BMC Team flew to Qatar Thursday afternoon from Paris. She has done the race the past two years, so it isn’t new to her. I think a lot of people are ready to get the races going. It is amazing how much travel and work is done at training camps, ect. before a Pro Team ever even clips in. I’ll keep you updated as much as possible to the inside happenings over there.

The Chinese New Year started Thursday too. The year of the rabbit. Chinese year 4708 on the Chinese calender. It’s a pretty big deal for them. There are 1.3 billion Chinese people. Maybe we should be paying more attention to their holidays/celebrations.

Waiting for the Team Presentation.

It's not always so glamorous. Lots of waiting around.

I guess the hotels are always crazy nice at this race. They are moving from a Ritz-Carlson to another Ritz-Carlson today.

Dessert buffet at the hotel. My kind of hotel.
