The first day of March. Summer is done here though the days remain warm. Perfect days for living, perfect days for cycling.

The odometer reads 2,174 kilometres. My goal for the year is to ride 12,000 kilometres.


In Europe, the Spring Classics begin. Tomorrow Strade Bianche, along the white gravel roads of Tuscany, Italy. The course has some 6o kilometres of sterrati (gravel sections).

The organisers have decided that whoever wins the race three times will have one of the sectors named after him, so that gives me added motivation to go for the victory. – Fabian Cancellara (2 time winner)
