World Cup Racing, Czech Rep

This morning, as I flapped about getting ready to travel to the Czech Republic for the next Mtn Bike World Cup of the series, I found myself drinking coffee while on the phone AND doing yoga. Now I’ve always been one for time tetrus but, in retrospect, that takes the ostentatious biscuit. All I was missing was a hands free headset and I could have passed for one of those women who believe so completely in their own self importance that they take minuscule lunch breaks and fill them with caffeine and workouts. What I find is you end up not enjoying either of them and really piss off the person on the other end of the phone. Still, I made it to Inverness airport this afternoon suitable stretched and caffeinated and having only pissed off a couple of people. I strutted through departures in my garish GB cycling uniform, casually acknowledging enquiries as to my destination and purpose. I forgot to put my sunglasses on my head unfortunately but I think I got away with it. I’ll keep it up in Bristol airport. I may find some children I can pat on the head benevolently while swaggering between flights and should arrive in Prague this evening to be swept up by British Cycling and taken to my hotel. Tomorrow, once the mechanics have built my bike, I’ll pre ride the course at Nove Mesto na Morave. Then I ll get my arse kicked in the Pro Sprint Eliminator on Friday afternoon before losing the rest of my stuffing and self esteem in the main event on Sunday which will be televised by Red Bull TV for the world to see. It’s a funny thing that I do. Sent using BlackBerry® from Orange
