What a day!

Set out from the hotel at 8.00 am into Stavelot and then immediately turned sharp right up a very big hill. Then we continued out though the Arden and over 5 very tough climbs totalling 1700 meters!.

Continued for four grueling hours over 100 Kms, but the countryside was fantastic and we both finished very well. Weather was great, not too hot and intermittent sunshine.

Back to the hotel for a quick lunch and then we cycled up another hill to watch the race go by immediately adjacent to Francorchomp race track.

Doing our best to recover for a big day in Flanders tomorrow.

100+ km on first day.......uh oh...
If 100km (on hills) is a taste of what is to come on a daily basis I think I'm going to rather enjoy this ...... Cheers, S
