Five months of preparation, more than 5,000 kilometers of training, countless hours in the saddle, both in all weathers and indoors, two mandatory breaks, one of them because of COVID, and a not entirely harmless crash a week before the race. And all for this day!
I just say:

Today the legs had to be pumped one last time. What is better suited for this than the nearest velodrome 😁
Up to 50 km/h in the banked curve is awesome!!

Penultimate day before the M312 and it almost went wrong. The bike shop had promised me a BMC, but forgot to put me in the calendar. But La Bicicletta Arta wouldn't be the best if there wasn't always something going on. Without further ado, the boss made his brand-new, freshly assembled and still unused… read more

A trip via Garmisch and Reutte to the Allgäu was actually planned today, but the weather conditions and the prospect of traffic returning from Easter holidays made me change my plans at short notice.

I don't usually post my little practice sessions anymore, but today's was just too good not to share. Since the streets were almost empty, I decided not to dodge the small paths, but to take the "normal" streets. Most of the time it was easy and hilly and a little pressure was called for on the larger… read more

Heavy snow flurries and 0 degrees this morning, which is why club training was sensibly cancelled. Still, I decided to take the risk and believe the weather report that it should clear up and stay dry in the afternoon.
And that's actually how it was. Unfortunately, the gusty wind from the north-west was… read more

Since gardening was still the order of the day this afternoon, I was already in the saddle at half past seven this morning. Advantage: everything is free and only moderate traffic even on the Kesselberg. Disadvantage: freezing cold!!!
The plan was to ride the Kesselberg three times, do a lap of honor… read more
