Last weekend, I rode a Gran Fondo in Luxemburg, called “Jean Nelissen Classic” – next year, it will be dubbed “DTC Luxemburg Classic”.
They redrew the course to be more challenging than ever and since I still remember the (hard) ride I had in 2009, I was certain it was going to hurt.
And of course, the forecast was good all week, so it rained at the start Saturday morning.
Plus, it was quite chilly – especially after the near 30 degrees Celsius we had earlier this week – so I left with three layers of clothing.
Since Paula was accompanying me along the route – not the complete ride, but we’d meet every 25-30 kilometers – I could easily get rid of the extra clothing later on.
In the end, I didn’t, because it stopped raining, but it remained chilly throughout the day.
