In the Calgary airport right now for my flight. I’m off to Europe for 3 races in 3 weeks. First up is the Kitzbuhel WCS, followed by a French Grand Prix race in Tours, and then another WCS race in Hamburg. We’ll be based out of Kitzbuhel for most of our stay.
I’m looking forward to racing in France. This will be my first race with the Metz team. It’s a sprint race so it’s going to be very fast and probably a bit chaotic as there’s typically 80-90 guys that start!
I’ve had a lot of great support this past week from family, friends, fellow athletes and coaches following a tough couple of races. I spent a lot of my downtime emailing and meeting with a bunch of different people getting advice on nutrition/hydration strategies. I’ve developed a pretty good plan of attack for the next few races and I feel confident that I can sort things out. It’s probably going to take a bit of tweaking from race to race so I’m going to be patient, but I’m looking forward to it!
Time to fly!
