So the 2.nd rest day finally came – I think I can speak for every one when I say that it’s truly needed!
We kicked of yesterday with Nicki coming in 4.th – It was so so so close again, He really showed the team colors – Could have been amazing with a stage win – but there’s still time to make that come true. As the gentle man Nicki is he came in to the truck and gave me the beautiful flowers he had received for being the most aggressive rider of the stage – I love it when the riders bring flowers to the kitchen ! Thank you Nicki :)
So Since it was the evening before the rest day it was time for yet another feast and this time Bjarne decided on homemade burgers – What a great succes! Well Burger is always a succes … and for dessert a danish classic “koldskål” a cold buttermilk soup – at first they where not to impressed with the look of it, but then they had a taste – and they absolutely loved it! YEAH!
