This is the course for Thursdays GVA Koppenberg Cross.
Perhaps an idea that wasn't such a good one as its one of the hilliest courses I've ever seen. And I prefer power climbs not drags.
That said its 2 hours from Calais and closer to go to than a few races in the UK.
So while the Team ViCiOUS crew are prepared to help me out, I'm going to go out there and try my hardest.
I feel like I've gone back in time by four years, 2008, Bradford National Champs
I was so nervous, I wasn't gridded as I had no recognised points, I was so worried that as Helen Wyman came past to lap me I'd get on her way and she'd get cross (luckily that didn't happen).
I've set myself some goals.
Don't get lapped
Don't give up on the climbs
Stick to schedule through the day, eating, warm up, etc
I've fitted a compact chain set so that my new lowest inner ring will be 34t and ive put on a new 12-27 cassette
Dugast Rhinos on both bikes.
