After Challenge Roth we drove straight to my home village and my parents home in Jenalöbnitz. It is such a lovely village! While I had another big race to come I went back to training quite quickly. Now I have another hard and nice training blog in my legs. The best were our Suisse friends who visited us in Jenalöbnitz for a long weekend. They came here to enjoy the flat rides around Jena. But the surprise was more than big after our first loop: 80kms and 1200m of altitude! That’s why I have such strong bike legs;-)
The 4 weeks were not only filled with training. We visited old Goethe and Schiller town Weimar, celebrated my 30st birthday, cycled along a beautiful castle near Jena: Leuchtenburg, had 2 Gourmet dinners at our chef friends at Ritters Weinstuben in Merseburg and Jo was helping a fresh born lamb. Now we need to pack our bikes and then off to Bintan for Metaman. Looking forward to race!
