Yeah, it really is that exciting, because this is such a crazy big, out of control, exciting, unbelievable dream that I am actually living right here in real life, like I pinch myslef and I don't even wake up! It's real!!!!!
Anyway, I'm so pumped. Here's a little details about World Champs Week, days 1-3.
Day 1: We woke up at 3:45am in Pheonix to drive to the airport for my 6am flight. Got checked in, through security, all is well by 7am. BUUUUUUTTTTT the plane was broken so they delayed the flight, they say till 10am, but also say it's kinda indefinately. I get stressed, change flights... try to calm down. Then I overhear the announcment that my origional flight is boarding so I booked it back over, plea to be put back on the flight and next thing you know I have 3 seats to myself for the Pheonix to JFK leg.
The rest of the travel was completely smooth/uneventful/pleasant, and my bike even arrived in Prague with my flight, so already I'm feeling like a winner!
|Seriously, so close. Soooo so close!|
And then I built my bike and spun my travel legs out on the most beautiful, bucolic countryside since Switzerland :)
And then I dove into the forest to find trolls and gnomes and singletrack! Sadly I found none, but there were a ton of mushrooms which was pretty cool!
And then I went to bed so freaking exhausted from 48 hours of travel and whatnot. It was glorious.
First imression of the course and day 3 recap coming soon, now to dinner and the opening ceremonies!
