It hit me today that it is the 18th. The very same day I will be rolling out of Geneva with my Vicious teammates (and seeing the way they have been training, it may be the last I see of them for the remainder of the day).
Two months is not a lot of time, but it’s also plenty of time, depending on your perspective on these things. My normal way through life is to forget about the inevitable till it is too late, but I have learned a thing or two from cycling.
- That attitude doesn’t work. Weakness will be exposed on the 1st rise in the road.
- Quality miles in the legs is everything.
It is with this spirit that I play hooky once again tomorrow and go forth in search of that elusive ‘Ventoux Triple 2013’. The meteo is calling for thunder storms, so keep your expectations in check. With a little luck I’ll be reporting back soon.

Thanks, although I think I’ll need a bit more than that 😉
Thank you , TP. If you and Mrs. TP would like an excuse to come to Nice, you can fly down and see us finish…and meet my mom!
We are seriously thinking of a biking holiday in your area later in the year.
Good luck Gerry! I guess you need to get the most out of the next two months so you’re in peak form, while not pushing yourself to the point where you injure yourself. You can do it!
I think you’re right. Feeling pretty good at the moment, if not lightning fast. I’ll just keep looking for mountains around here and I should be fine.
We all like speed but first time around, just getting through the HR will be a MASSIVE achievement even if you ended up chatting with the flamme rouge all the way, which you won’t.
So you assert that forgetting about the inevitable until it is too late is actually a BAD thing? Interesting. This philosophy is the very foundation of my life. Perhaps I will need to rethink some things.
I knew there was a reason I liked you, Steve!
