Spring fever

It only takes some warm North-African air to get us buzzing with excitement after a couple of cold and very wet winter months. With the beach race season having come to an end, team eCHATlon-Doltcini is shifting it’s focus to the second leg of the season. From now on we will have to go the distance, both on training rides and races.

We are beyond stoked to have riding conditions this mild in the middle of december. It really makes clocking those much needed LSD rides so much more enjoyable. But there is more. As if the sunny weather wasn’t enough of a motivator, Terry and I received some other presents that are really boosting the watts-department.

Shoutout to Abus for providing us with the slickest helmets we ever wore. These things truly are gamechangers. Not only do they assure a perfect fit. they are also crazy light, super sturdy and real headturners. This season team eCHATlon-Doltcini will be rocking two different models. Both the aero Gamechanger and the extremely light and ventilated Aventor will be keeping our coconuts safe when gravity decides to take it’s job a bit too seriously. If your are looking looking for a a helmet that not only looks good, but also performs at the highest level, just go with the Germans. Abus really knocked it out of the park with these babies.

Even though it looks and feels like spring has landed and is here to stay, Terry and I decided to treat ourselves to a week of training in Spain. A little bootcamp never hurt nobody and neither did an extra dose of vitamin beach. This means chances are our next post will be reaching you guys straight from the mediterranean coast, long sunny rides, cocktails and Pata Negra will surely get us ready for the first big races coming up in April.

Follow the sun!
