#tbt to a favorite I made a couple years back. “Glass... blowing” was constructed hot and adhered to the arbor of a vintage fan. It’s a fitting homage as the heat just will not yield here in KC. (Lost the process footage which is too bad. Fun to turn the blades in the g-hole. #fanatic#fan#glassfan#badideas#glassblowing#literally
Day 5, 27k upwind time trial. 😵
Last few days i got a little distracted, but finally here is my expirience of the last day @sup11citytour .
Starting in 4th position with +4min on @martinorogai in 3th and -2 seconds on @joepvanbakel in 5th. I knew i had to go hard but not blow myself up in the first 12k upstream upwind part.
Same as in the first time trial i was really fighting with myself in first part and didn't feel the glide. Getting the increasing time diffrences from the support team on the bridges, i knew i had to try harder and step up my game.
On the easier side wind strech i took the time for a gel and drink and just tried to refocus. After this i started to find my flow again and began hunting the yellow jerseys i saw in front of me. With a strong steady pace in the next upwind part through the open fields, i managed to come back.
Going into Leeuwarden i started seeing Joep again. Not knowing the times at that point didn't actually matter, i just gave it everything i had left. After 202k I crossed the line with a +20 second difference from joep in 4th place and +5minutes from Martino in thrid. Congrats guys!
5th place after day5 and stoked about it. 😁
Thanks to the organisers @sup11citytour for putting it down, see you next year. And thanks to all other competitors for the hard but fun days racing. 😅😉
And to end this serie another grateful thank you to everyone who supports me racing!
