We are back at Mallorca camp , preparation for our first tour which starts at the end of January “Tour of Qatar“ . We went out with a nice tailwind and climbed two times the San Salvador , beautiful view up there, if you can enjoy it and not think of the way back , which will be the whole time heavy headwind. It is our second day of training , and somehow nothing has changed, if you compare it to last year’s camp here. It’s still the same scenario , we ride two rows side by side , normally the first 2 riders would change off the front to the back, but not here we rotate only in one row, on one side at a wind strength of 39 km/h!
Because Ellen “the animal” stays the whole time at the front while 4 of us change next to her . At the end my average watts was nearly like during the competition when we were back at the hotel.
So, same scenario then last year . I hope we survive the next 6 days of training. Best thing by far today, after four hours Ellen says : “ girls I’m tired “ CAN YOU IMAGINE !?
I wish the other three girls and myself good luck for the rest of the camp that we will survive the animal…
