Training in Spain2015-02-27
After the Vuelta a Andalusia, I have returned to Spain. I am again in Cambrils, where we have had several team training camps before. Together with my wife Laura and my son we have a nice apartment.
I will prepare here for Paris-Nice. Like last year, I have decided to skip the Classics opener Het Nieuwsblad. It would have then been to long until Paris-Nice, without another long period of training in between.
I am not satisfied with the results of Andalusia, with the two sprint losses to Lobato, but my form is good. The curve is heading up. But of course I was upset to have made the same mistake twice, so that Lobato could win. He came up from behind with a lot of speed and then it was too late for me. But I must say, he has an incredible punch.
My training now is concentrated on the Classics. The weather here is quite good, just the wind is pretty strong. But I hope that will get better.
