Julian Dean Diary
Different country, different style.
habit on the head?.
As for this ?twisted sister?, we?ve just done stage 5. Yesterday?s stage 4 was hard. The hardest so far. I was dropped early but there were 40 or so guys dropped before me so relatively speaking, it wasn't too bad a day for me. Although I think that there are a lot of guys here who are struggling
on the climbs (more than at most races), I?m probably just going ?normal? for me ? not flying but not completely sucking either. If look at who is on the front, I know that I?m capable of being there as well. Anyway, the fact that there are 40 or so guys dropped before me most days makes me feel better. It?s good to have a big group to ride in to the finish with.
We are counting down the stages now with only 2 left. All in all, I haven?t been feeling myself on the bike. I reckon that I?m going ok but just not able to produce all the power I?m capable of due to the biomechanic problem I?m having on my bike. My next objective after this race is to get this sorted out before it causes a major injury. I?ve had a serious injury before caused by incorrect bike position and it was a bloody nightmare that took over a year to solve. It was a frustrating time and I don?t want to have to deal with that sort of hassle again?.
