It’s a hoe

The race in Geesthacht was cancelled because of the flood waters in the eastern parts of Germany, and that saved me from having to swim in the Elbe River (which last year wasn’t so bad, just very cold).

So, I drove out to Itzehoe instead, to do the Olympic distance. I’ve done the race before, and it’s not my favourite, because the bike course is short and very bumpy. Over the five laps, there was carnage, with half a dozen riders getting flats. But overall, it was a good race, and I’m happy with my 2:19 result.

First place was 46 years old, second was 38, third was 51. Everyone in the top seven was over 37. No comment about that.
