In lieu of the Tour of Bright being cancelled for weather, most of the AMR Renault guys decided to make the trip to the alpine region for a three day training camp in the mountains. We had a great time and got to know each other better, becoming better mates off the bike as well as on. With most of the guys staying on the team next year this was a valuable experience and I can't wait to see what they can do in 2018.
Even though we were able to enjoy ourselves for the weekend without getting to race, the local club had already spent the money on the organisation of the Tour. If you're an avid cyclist and want to help this awesome race go forward in the coming years, please consider heading over to their GoFundMe page as every bit counts.
This week I'm in Bendigo staying at the Nankervis house before driving up to Orange for MTBA National Rounds 1 & 2 with Team Torq/Merida.
