In case you don’t know what happens after a race, here is a little look from the insight. Yesterday, Cadel finished racing the Tour of Oman and, according to the huge quantity of photos that he sent me during the past week, he had a great time. Nice weather, fancy hotel, good training and racing, good results for both himself and the team. A good way to kick off the 2013 cycling season. But what happens once the race is over? If you’ve been good/lucky enough, you’ve got to do the podium ceremony, which lasts a bit. Then everyone rushes to the airport to go back to their homes or next destinations, in most of the cases in Europe.
After a late night flight, Cadel arrived in Stabio at 7AM of a cold Swiss Sunday morning… The evening before he was in Oman, the morning after (today!) he’s back home in Switzerland; that still amazes me some times. It was early, Cadel was tired from the overnight flight, so he decided to make himself a coffee. Actually… that was the intention but it didn’t happen because someone (I think it was me? Or Molly?) was supposed to fix the coffee machine but did't. Yesterday I told our son The Lil Man (aka Robel) that his Papi was coming back today, but he still doesn’t get the feeling of time. So here he was, the little cutie jumping in his cot at the view of Cadel. The best way to wake up for our little boy! The next thing? A quick nappy change and then straight on Papi’s shoulders.. the best place to be!
