2018 is just a month old but there is a lot to say... So enjoy the read.
During Christmas break we left dark and rainy Belgium and spend some time in the snowy mountains of Austria for some serious training. The first days we explored Achenkirch, a small village just over the German border, on cross country ski's. It had been a while so Sara suffered the first two days but little by little the technique came back.
On New Years' day sun was out so we hiked up one of the touring routes up to 1600M ! After a 120' hike we enjoyed the views and being there just the two of us.
We decided to leave a day earlier than planned because there was some bad weather coming and travelling with a camper trough the mountains can be tricky. And seemed we made the right decision because a few day's later the alps had hips of snow and traffic troubles, but by that time we were already safely at home.
The first week of the year we concentrated on the cyclocross competition in our back yard. Just like last year Sara decided to enter the race with the Elite women, but this year the race came early. So it would be harder to finish the race and not get lapped.
During the training days the lap was slippery, but the last two days the wind dried up the course and it made it a fast lap what made it even harder for Sara. Start was fast, but went well, but during the first lap there was a lot of hassle and lack of power. After tree laps of suffering and killing heart rates Sara was taken out of the race right before she got doubled.
Like always Peter was there with he's honest opinion: 'There is still a lot of work to do to get you race ready for the MTB season'.
A week later Sara was ill, the first time in ages the flu got to her. Feeling miserable, coughing and sleeping all day was not the only issue. But the coughing also made a back problem return whitch made Sara spend half a day in the hospital. Hopefully some good news about that soon...
After a week in bed we decided to visit Velofollies to see some of our partners and we had some other plans that day...
Velofollies was a great chance to meet up with Overstims. We have been supported by Overstims for over two years, but the special thing this year is that we have been rewarded for our loyalty... We officially entered the sponsoring program of Overstims 🙌
Our aprés Velofollies was some shopping ....
During our last camper trip to Achenkirch we decided that it was time to replace our four wheeled buddy. And 20 January we met our new travelling buddy in Izegem Campirama
😍 Love at first sight it was... So we would like to present to you our brand new Carado T447
More pictures will follow soon!
Last but not least or bikes are allmost ready... During the last weeks they have literally arrived piece by piece
