getting the word done

This is a picture of me and one of the cervelo engineer at the San Diego windtunnel in feburary. I learned a lot and in this particular case, we were observing the airflow around the bike and the body of the cyclist. A small string attache to the stick would show me well when the air would be disturbe or smooth and what direction it would go around the different part. As you can see if you look at the large version of the pic, the wind is blowing at 30mph!!! it s cold in there!

This week as been amazing. It's my first week in boulder and i m falling in love with this place. People are so nice and friendly and the training roads and trails are next to none. The only negative aspect i could find is the lack of good open water place to swim and the expensive pools all over town. But for the rest, boulder is definitly a place to visit!

I been doing a lot of hard session and threshold work. I might be taking part in the boise 70.3 and for sure will be at the Muskoka chase on june 15th! Then, it will be time for lake placid!

We had some snow today for a few minutes and i took my mtb out as it was pretty cold. I got a awsome 2.5h ride all over the trails and a great swim with mark. I m doing the work and should be ready for july 20th!

tomorow is ice cream day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
