The Ronde van Drenthe or how it is also sometimes in imitation to Roubaix called Hel van het Noorden is my first stage race this year. OK, its only two stages but it will still be some tough pice of work for me and the team to show our qualities. I'm confident about myself! The last weekend without racing was good for the relaxation of my brain and the refocussation on the upcoming races. I did some serious training with a nice six hour lap through the black forest and I sometimes felt weird having to deal with people in ski suits while sitting on a bike and wearing a short jersey...
My prediction for the race: I think the team is hungry. The last few weeks haven't been to satisfying but we are a great group and we are definatelly able to show something!
