Don’t miss out on the latest CyclingTips updates.
This site isn’t about my personal escapades but once in a while it’s fun to show you what I’ve been up to. You may not know the names and faces in this video but I’m sure you can relate and hopefully it inspires you to get out there with your mates and enjoy the upcoming summer. If you live in North America or Europe, these days are 6-8 months away! It’s a great time to visit Australia.
This past weekend we went away for some team bonding. This was the furthest thing from a Bjarne Riis style boot camp you could imagine, but that was the whole point. Sure we got a bunch of good hard riding in but more than that we got to know and understand each other a little bit better. All of us rarely ride together outside of racing. This is important before a long season of 2-3 races per week where you’re riding your hearts out and sacrificing yourselves for one another. It also signifies the start of the season, let’s you plan some individual and team goals, and serves as some great motivation to do well.
This was shot over two beautiful days in Sorrento (on Mornington Peninsula in Victoria). You don’t have to go far to have a great experience. It’s just a matter of getting away from the daily grind for a couple days with a few of your best mates. A little sunshine always helps too.
