Pretty good summary there. Good effort on testing your limits and well done on a top 20 in a surprisingly difficult event.
We got lucky in the hills. One day sooner and we would have hit snow.
I'm not sure. I got to the hostel, but after an hour in the dorm room I had a sudden change of heart and went booking.com, just so that i could guarantee some sleep. I'm this guy if that helps...
Funny looking polo bike.
Did you do it on flats?!
Yeah. I have had a couple of knee surgeries so like to have a lot of movement in case it locks out.
What shoes do you use in hot weather?
I've been using FiveTens but don't fancy them in the summer.
Thongs, bro. :D
I use some Salamon cross-running shoes which have been fantastic.
Some irony in almost freezing to death out there and yet I'm peeling sunburnt skin off... :S
Also, I was right to visit a dentist. Drillin' and fillin' next week.
Yeah, peeling nose and face and a lot of comments at work on my "suntan" (windburn).
I'd better go see the dentist. All those stroopwaffels will have left their mark I'm sure.
I had toothache during the race. X-ray the other day and there's a big hole in a tooth. The junk food can't help but it's more how my wisdom tooth grew on an angle that caused it.
Bike will get its new drivetrain tomorrow I hope.

Super report, thank you. What an awesome ride you had. I can't even begin to imagine the effect of the dutch wind, block paving and lack of sleep had
Great report, Tom. Well done again on that excellent result.
Great read, enjoyed that :)
Me too; great ride and nice writing, Tom!
