So the season is nearly underway. I thought I’d give you guys a short insight into what my 2017 contains. Last Saturday we crossed the channel via the tunnel and my dad dropped me off in Toucy, France. This is where our team is based and where I will be living for the next 8 or so months. I have been here only 2 full days alone now and already settling in a little, of course in a months time I will be able to say more on how I’m actually finding the living experience out here, but for now I’m happy. Tomorrow I will start packing up my brand new Lapierre (which I will show in a different post) to fly out to Morocco where I will take part in 2 sets of UCI 1.2 races, both containing 3 individual races – on the 3rd, 5th, 6th then 9th, 11th and 12th of February. Currently whilst writing this I’m waiting for the arrival of my team mates Jake from Ireland and Siim from Estonia, and look forward to some company – as you can imagine, being alone with a bad Wi-Fi signal isn’t ideal for many 18 year olds, but I’ll be quiet and appreciate I have it!
For the rest of the season we will do a mixture of French national races, some flat and some mountainous with a mixture of single day and stage races. I’ll also travel home to especially to compete in the National Championships of course. I’ll keep it short for now – and I’ll keep you guys posted.
