My first real stage race will take place on the 30. of March untill the 1. of April. Three days, four stages in the Ardennes. the second day with a timetrail in the morning will be the biggest challenge for me. Therefor I'm finally practicing on my timetrail bike which I have now at home. The third day - thats what I was told - will make the big time differences in the classement.
My great shape in the early races of the season saddly didn't result in good shot. The courses were just not fitting to my qualities only Sud Ardeche could have been a good race but I just wasn't ready in my racing behavior...
The Ardennes with their steep climbs up to four or five K's long climbs could be the first platform for me to show something of my potential!
