All finished up with a wet Tour of Swiss. I don’t think I’ve done a race that wet since the Tour of Willamette up in Oregon years ago. Finished up the race with a decent 3rd place in the ITT. Didn’t think I was having that good of a ride. It was a one of those days where I was in the zone, there were no distractions. Before the race I basically had the bus to myself so I plugged my iPod into the bus speakers and had a good time before I got out on the trainer. While on the trainer I felt like I had decent legs. I really need to work on my cornering in the rain though. Once you’ve slipped out a few times you know how fast it can happen, and you don’t want it to happen again. The camera moto followed next to me most of the race and he was actually getting on my nerves a bit. When I was finished I had to do control. They were doing it in a large ambulance type vehicle. I was getting cold sitting in there, all I had on was a little skinsuit and it was all wet from rain and sweat. So I thought hey I’ve been in one these before and asked them for some blankets. So I sat there shivering in blankets waiting to pee. My team doc came in and I asked him to get me a hot coffee to try and heat me up a bit and speed the whole pee thing along, as we also had a flight to catch back to Spain. He came back with a coffee and I was much happier. I said, ‘let’s give it a go.’ They made me put on some real crappy plastic gloves, which I guess is a new rule. It did wonders for my dexterity. I barely got the necessary amount. Finished up all the paperwork got back to the bus and off we went to the airport. The plane was delayed for a few hours. Congrats to Frank Shcleck that was a really hard race to win my friend.
