We had a team presentation las Tuesday in Mechelen, where is home of our new sponzor Telenet. The name of the team will be Telenet Fidea cycling team in the new season and we also changed colours of the shirts and team cars. The shirts will be in yellow-white-blue combination.
There were a lot of people at the presentation. Every rider was intoduced to the sponsors and media. Is spoke in Glemish language and I hope, that it was not too bad:)-
The team stayed almost the same. Ne signings are Czech U23 racer Karel Hnik, who shoud firstly come to Fidea in January, but bot teams made a decision and he could start with us. He is young tallented rider and he will race in U23 races, including Superprestige and GVA.
The second new guy will be from January 1st Rob Peeters from Landbouwkrediet-Colnago. I am really happy about his coming. He is a good rider and also very good person.
My last start on the road was stages race Tour de Slovakia. I had two bad days at the beginning, in the first stage I came with 9 minut, but at the thirs „king’s stage“ I finnished the third. It was really good for my confidence. The last day was also good for me, I rode cross the climbs with 20 best riders, but I did not make a good sprint at the finnish. The race was good training for me firstly and I am happy with my performance.
When we arrived back to th Belgium, except of training, we moved with Ine to our new house in Essen. It is fine to be in own, but a lot of work is still waiting for us. And on Saturday we were at the party of our team manager Hans van Kasteren, who got married on Wednesday. I ma really looking for the first race now and I hope to be good. Keep your fingers:-)
