Friday morning

This morning was a nice and easy one with sleeping in, having breakfast, and for some, spending some time on the warm-up bike. Then to the Civic Center for the ridersmeeting and the allocation of the slots for the heats during this evening runs and for the next morning. After lunch we went to a street near the High School where the drag races were held. Sjaak, Thomas and Erika took a turn in competing. Sjaak was one of the faster riders, but not the fastest. Erika turned out to be the fastest of the ladies on a Cannondale road race, borrowed from Robert Barnett.

Back at the hotel we split up in two groups. One half went swimming, the other group stayed at the hotel room for some needed rest.

  1. "sleeping in"

    We BRITONS have a word for people who engage in this kind of behaviour, and it is this:


    You'd better have something to show for it tomorrow or I'll get the P*nct*r* Fairy on your case again :-)

  2. We'll get you something tomorrow Mr Larrington, but that will be after we have slept in, again.
