I get very excited seeing the list of races that will make out my 2012. Not only for the big one in august, the once every four year Olympic Games kind of race. But for the season as a whole.
The way the camps are laid out, the travel and the places I get to go to.
Davos is almost like a second home to me now as I have spent four summers there already. It’s nice to have somewhere where you know the routes, the weather, the girl in the supermarket. But it adds a bit of excitement for me to go somewhere new, to break it up and spend some time in Arizona. A new playground. This before putting my head down doing the last push before the games.
After the Olympics I have some time to reestablish a base and spend some time on my TT bike. Obviously defending my win in the Hy-Vee triathlon is a big target. This will also work hand in hand with the ITU World Series Final which has a very demanding bike course.
