The waiting is almost over, in less than a week’s time the Three Grand Tours Challenge will be underway. As I sit and write this there’s a mixture of emotions; excitement, nervousness, fear, worry. For so long it has been something to work towards, and yet now the start is almost upon us.
Success. It’s something that we are all chasing, but what does it actually mean?
During the past weeks I have had the privilege of visiting Poland, Dubai, Vienna and Greece, and fortunate enough to mix work with pleasure and adventure on each trip. Travel has always been a passion of mine, there’s something so exciting about experiencing new cultures and exploring the amazing world we live in, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to lead the life I do.
If you're a professional cyclist chances are you will have, at some stage of your career, spent several weeks accumulating winter miles on the island of Mallorca, with the added bonus of a warming sun on your back.
Whilst the Three Tours Challenge has only recently been made public I've known about it for some time now, and as such have been preparing accordingly, all the while trying to contain my excitement and keep my feet on the ground (or should that be in the pedals).
