A brand new 'round-the-world' ticket is lying in my suitcase, and we’re very much looking forward to the upcoming exciting period of competing and racing. After a good week on Norwegian soil with relaxing days at home in Stavanger, we are now looking forward to nine weeks of travel again.

Sunday evening has arrived here in our little sitting-room, in a town called Heubach-Lautern, south of Stuttgart in Germany. My body is feeling strangely knackered and very relaxed as we sit here in the little nook on the sofa after another day on our bikes. I’ve taken part in the Bundesliga in Münsingen today. The results were way above what we had expected, and we simply won the race. It’s great to feel that my body is beginning to work normally and properly again.

We’ve had some tough days since we got back from USA almost two weeks ago. The trip from Curacao to Monterey in California was long and tiring, and we were stressed out at the Sea Otter Classic. It was very demanding to take part in four races after a difficult world cup in the Caribbean. But with a strong focus on restitution, and with Kenneth’s good help, we did surprisingly well.
