The journey has started, Melbourne – Singapore – Milan. I arrived as well as can be expected after 22hrs of travel and 4 hours of sleep in 2 x 2hr sessions.
After arriving in Milan at 6.00am it was then a short drive to the Australian Institute of Sport – European Training Centre – situated in Gavirate, on the shores of Lake Varese. It really is an athelets home away from home. Naturally the first stop was breakfast, unpack, then put bikes together, lunch, then ride.
Its a long day that first day.
Since then the training rides have all gone to plan. Today I needed to start some antibiotics for a slight respiratory infection, just a precaution. I start racing tomorrow at Piacenza.
Until next time,
