I am writing this from the roof top area of the GZI Kongress, and its a beautiful June evening.
Its a different feeling from last week in Roma, no traffic, noise and commotion. Here its quite and relaxed. My results from Roma reflected my state of health, 8th in the Time Trial and 8th in the Road Race.
I raced the TT this morning and it felt ok. Although the results are not up as yet I came second in a field of 5, many of the big guns were not present. This week is the first week I feel that I have been back on the bike so to speak. It feels very much like I have been off (unwell) for the last couple of weeks. One thing is for certain its a beautiful place to get back on it. The hotel is on the shores of Lake Sempach. If anything you tend to do too much training around here, it is beautiful and accessible. If you want flat riding, ride around the lake. If its hills turn right or left. Next door to the hotel is the Schweizer Paraplegker Zentrum the most advanced rehab facility in Europe, which also has a pretty cool collection of outdoor art.
The weather has mostly been fine although rain is predicted for tomorrow in the afternoon, just when the road race is starting. The race is 60km or three laps of Lake Sempach, more information is here.
Lets hope things are on the up and up from here on in.
Until next time.
