I am in Spain now, Segovia a beautiful city – Roman aqueduct, Cathedral and Castle all in the one ancient town. We are here for another World Cup event. I am feeling much better since Roma and even better than Swiss.
I finished the Swiss Road Race in second place seconds behind my fellow competitor from South Africa and current Road Race World Champion Mr. Ernst van Dyk. I was happy with the result.
After Swiss we made our way by car, plane and car to Souraide in South West France, Basque country. This was different countryside from the Swiss, more rolling hills here. We were here to race in the 10th Urt International Paracyclisme Tour, a three day race, our mini Tour de France! I felt much better for these races. I placed 3rd, 2nd and 1st in the combined H2/3/4 General Classification and was much happier with my effort.
Now I only have two more races, one Friday – one Saturday. Both are well fielded with many of the racers from Roma in attendance. It will be challenging but unlike Roma I am feeling much stronger.
