Actually I had a bit of bad luck today. For the first time since I have bought this bike in 2006, I got a flat tire.There was a very small thorn in it, but it was very hard and sharp. Luckily I had a spare tire and two CO2 cartridges with me. Eva and Bram met me, just outside Westkapelle so I could adjust the tire pressure up to 4 bars.
I was quite surprised I didn't spend all my power on the ride. I even had enough power for a final sprint on the dam. The flat tire had drastically influence on my final time. The transponder that I got from the organization registered a time of 4 hours and 9 minutes.
