Arrived in Düsseldorf, beautiful city. Have taken in the atmosphere and sampled the city’s culture.
The city is all set up for the start of next weeks TDF commencing although our start is tomorrow with a 14km time trial.
Met a number of other riders who all look lean, mean and professional… obviously everybody quietly sizing each other up even though it’s a challenge.
The months of training, hard work and sacrifices are over, nothing else can be done but wait until tomorrow.
Nerves and trepidation as well as excitement…
the time has arrived ????
