I love this place! I am in Apeldoorn, Netherlands for the World Championships. This is one of the biggest races of the year, and it is really nice to be in a such a nice area for the event. We were here last year for a training camp and everything feels familiar.
We have a huge team, there are more riders here just for the Women’s Team Pursuit than we had total just 2 years ago. This year we have 10 athletes and 13 staff. Everything has been running so smooth, I really have nothing to worry about except riding as fast as I can.
It is easy to understand why so many people ride their bikes here, not only is the bike path system incredible, but there are trees everywhere and it is beautiful. (This is a shot of the bikepath just 5min from our hotel!)
Racing starts on Wednesday, and I race on Friday. Results can be found here.
