The company relay race is coming up soon and our team plan to set the pace again this year. The training has been tough. Will it have been enough? The race will decide. Lap one, our first rider stays with the leading group. Lap nine, HR in the red, just don‘t get dropped! Penultimate lap and still in the breakaway – it might be enough. One last look at the RACE TRAIN computer: the lap time is good. My thigh muscles are screaming and my heart rate is at the absolute limit. I look behind me but there‘s nobody to be seen. The finish line appears – the win is ours! Meticulous preparation pays off!
