Hey well I’ve been here in Krabi for about 10 days now and just now I feel like I am settling in!
When I landed I really hit the ground running hard! I jumped into training with the guys and felt the heat in the kitchen right away! Like most mortals, I struggled at first, but then I found my rythum and have been going better and better each session!
We had a short rest when we had the Blue 70 photoshot, of which made me feel like a celebrity!
Now that im here again, I sincerly believe Thailand has most spectacular geography in Asia, maybe even the world! Im pretty sure thats why our VISA is only 30 days, we have to leave and on top of that, no more than 90 days in a 180 day period, I understand, this a pretty awsome location.
And of coure, that damn water festival. So close your eyes, and imagine this, 3 days of drunken Thais throwing water on anything that moved! And some even went a little further, they would had some red stuff to th water, making look like a girls period splatered over me or others would get us wet and then throw baby power at us!
Well, there was only one little accident while we where ridding, appart from that, it was very tense ridding our bikes around.
So now, many of the core group are trickling back to races or their homes, as me and other athletes have just arrived. The next few weeks, my career might be taking a pretty serious turn, where new oppertunities will begin.
Its such a privilege to have the oppertunity to train with such high level athletes, who have been to the very top of our sport. Swimming, biking and running with them or just having a meal. I realise that the best in my sport, are very normal and down to earth people, who treat me like a little brother because I share the same passion as them…
