What’s been the best thing this week?

We’ve been in Switzerland for five days now, and race day is just a few hours away.  I thought I’d share some of our favourite moments of this special week.

Bed and Sudip spending 20 minutes gawping at a man cutting the grass with a petrol mower.  It was beyond their wildest dreams    (Rob)

The views, the countryside, the animals, the climate  (Sudip)

Finally meeting in the flesh Tim van der Veer, and enjoying how this group of people spread across the world have created such a brilliant team spirit.   (Rob)

Spending three days exploring the race route, seeing a new country and area.  We did a lot of hiking, trekking, exploring, a few adventures, seeing how the Swiss live.  It’s a multidimensional action activity   (Ramesh)

The dal baht (Sudip, I think he means the team spirit because well laugh and joke at the table….)

Swiss bananas (Sudip)

‘Ramesh Action’ finding a brand of meat here called ‘Action’   (Rob)

The natural beauty is wonderful, and I enjoy being here   (Bed)

Exploring the route from Bergun to Chants as a team, laughing and joking together (Tim)

  1. Bravo!
    I think ‘Action’ is often when something is on sale, at a reduced price. So not applicable to Ramesh in this case. He is in the full price delicatessen section. Or something.

  2. Great race you all!! Thanks Rob, for keeping even the most remote (Amsterdam here) up to date. I’ve been reading with a bit of anxiety (actually I would love to run with you all) and mostly fun, reading how youre progress is getting along. Have a great day tomorrow! For sure, you will remember this one :-)
