Yesterday we raced from Morlincourt a distance of qround 28o km to Nieuwendijk.
Could have done better this week as we are a little off the pace however only about 20 seconds so not a massive problem. We are looking forward very much to the NPO races when the distance extends a bit. Our team are coming well so we hope it continues.
