World Cup Speedskating

Sorry for not updating that much... but I just don't have much to report at the moment. I don't want to keep bothering you with the same old stuff every week :) My elbow recovery is going well, I've picked up training again and I've been able to do some solid road riding. You got to love it, to go out on your road bike this time a year in Holland. The weather has been pretty miserable and I think we had rain on every single ride this week. Last night I went to the World Cup speed skating. Speed skating is really popular in Holland, the crowd dresses up in orange and go wild when a Dutchie is on the ice. The top athletes are like rockstars here and followed by media all the time. Oakley came up with there big truck the "Rolling O-lab" (O-lab is a truck with a small lab inside where they show you how they test the Oakley glasses). It was great to see the Oakley crew again and we went out for a nice dinner. I wish everyone a good weekend!!
