Velodrom D’Horta training

Yesterday was supposedly the last in a series of warm summer days in Barcelona and with that in mind it seemed a good idea to head back to the Velodrom D’Horta for a few more photos of the training session as my first attempt was lacking a group of cyclists.

Happy New Year ride

To start of the year well I had my first ride on the Bianchi on January first. Here’s to a new year with (hopefully) many more rides and lots of photos of the rounds, wherever I make them :)

My personal condition at the moment is nothing to be proud about, but I’ll get to work on that now the holidays are over!
