Tour de L’Aude

Well. The Tour has started.  The Prolouge went off with out a hitch on Friday and the girls did well.  It was a little hectic leading up to the race though our team car broke down an the way to the team presentations the night before so we had to wrangle up a new car, install the radio’s and rack (all before heading to the stage 2 hrs away) Needless to say I was a little stressed, especially when the roof rack did not go onto the car and all 14 bikes and multiple wheelsets went into the van.  It all worked out and Christine Thorburn cracked the top 10 and The Much put in one hell of a ride to claim a spot in the top 25!!!  The girls were fast enough to give us a 6th slot in the Caravan for Stage 1.

Lots of stuff to type…. I am too busy and too tired.  Team tt tomorrow.  The team did well again today on a long stage wiht an hors category climb that was f’n steep for the last 2km. Christine is now 7th (?) on GC  and the team is 5th on team GC.   Back to the grind-
