Did I hear a “Please give us more pictures”? Well, as always I’m eager to please, so here is the “Best Of” picture gallery of our Tour de Suisse 2019 – again, if you want the larger original(s), drop me a line.
And yes, (summit) selfies are at the bottom of the recap post for this trip too.
(Below is was what I originally had in mind – the reports tell a somewhat different story, althoug in the end, I managed the “must do’s” I had in mind, just not the way I “planned” it 😎 There’s a lot of intersting intel in this post, though.)
Now that our short trip to sunny Egypt has ended and May is coming to a close, the start of my Tour de Suisse 2019 is only two months away.
Although I’m back to a regular – much less intense destructive than in 2018 – training routine, I’m still a long way from anything near my ‘normal’ form.
On average, my power numbers are 30 Watts lower than they used to be before my injuries forced me to take a 3-month break.
With some help from online sources, I successfully rebooted, following two training plans.
During that reboot, I reconnected with Xert and I’m now using their ‘adaptive training advisor’ to get me further back on track. I’ll try and write a post on Xert in the near future.
Anyway, the apartments for the Tour de Suisse have been booked, Chesa Bellaval in Silvaplana and Casa Nacla in Sedrun/Surrein.
Both apartments are chosen based on their strategic location, while still staying within a more or less ‘sane’ budget for the tour.
From either place, a score of cols is available for me to break my legs on…
In this post, I’m covering part 2, the week in Sedrun.
