Update #1: Team Choices

We have arrived safely in France and have several good days of training behind us. The team is in good spirits and we are optimistic about the challenging terrain. With the first races coming soon, we have many blog posts in the works with maps and videos of the French terrain.

In the mean time, Robbie and Patrick kept busy on a rest day ahead of the Middle Quali on Sunday. The day started out with a good sleep-in, followed by a nice morning jog along Lake Bourget and breakfast on the balcony. We decided to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our accommodations here in Aix-les-Bains. Here are some of the daily choices we are faced with as part of our daily grind in the south of France.

The instant coffee dilemma

Which shoes to wear?

Left or right?

Top or bottom?

To shave or not to shave?

Style or recovery?

  1. Thanks for the read guys! I saw the coffee picture and knew at once that Patrick was involved in writing this :)

  2. Which one of those pairs of socks is meant to fit under the category of 'style'? ;)

  3. I think you shrunk the pix of the beds. You'd have to be a hobbit to get into the bottom bunk!
