I can finally be underway again with my team and the guys. After sitting out so long because of the virus, I am really happy to ride my first race since Qatar here in Yorkshire. Actually I was getting much better, then it hit me again two weeks ago and I was in bed with a fever. So I lost more weeks. But now I am quite optimistic.
The thing for me now is to get race kilometers, find my way back in the competition rhythm, and simply to be with the team and the guys. I don’t know how my form is. I can’t say whether I will be good or bad. So I am not setting any goals.
Also, to be honest, the time after the virus was not easy. I had set myself so many ambitious goals for the Spring. Missing them was quite hard. And that just makes me happier to have my feet on the ground again and able to ride races.
