Healthy Ageing Tour 2018 - Stage 1

Whilst making the drive to Heerenveen for the opening stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour it dawned on me that I hadn’t shot a time trial since the World Championships last September. Hoping tin the back of my mind I could still remember how I headed onto the course to find the best sector of the course to offer some variety in the options to shoot whilst still being able to get back for the podium.

Anna continued her winning ways from the weekend with a more traditional TT effort than Sunday. Tomorrow we have a first road stage, I’m hoping for some strong wins to spice up the action!

It takes a certain kind of trust to allow someone to pin on your race number to your skin suit. Hopefully you can trust your sister!
