Girona training camp, day 5. Rest day

Rest days tend to be uneventful. Late start, short ride, riding easy, some chatting, all fun.

Still, as always happens with big cycling events, there is always news during rest days.

In our case I can confirm that “TT” Adam has abandoned the training camp!!!

His team has argued this is a pre-planned move, something related to a previous family commitment and about having the return ticket booked for today even before the training camp started. That’s what the team says.

Rumor has it that the real reason is more related to unexpected levels of cortisone in his body. The non-official explanation is that wanting to alleviate the stitchines of local mosquitos’ bites “TT” Adam went to a Spanish pharmacy and bought some cortisone based drug over the counter. 

It is not clear for me how that drug was used but looking at “TT” Adam’s performance yesterday (second at the climb, able to take a few sprints) I decided to visit the same pharmacy and complain about local mosquitoes. They sold me the same drug and I am now lying in bed with my body completely smeared in cream. 

I might look a bit silly now, but tomorrow I’m going to fly (like the mosquitos).
