Camp Jon

Fresh off the table from a great Kim Ward massage I'm sinking into this plastic chair outside the Coq D'or Hotel wifieving (wi-fi stealing) some online business.

After racing Hamburg WCS I had another quick exit, this time 3:30am with the Portugese team to the aiport. Met Jon#1 and Kyle in Barcelona and then we made our way up to camp to meet Simon and Jon#2. Jon#3 arrived yesterday completing the Camp Jon trifecta.

This week has been a great. Some recovery and aclimation early week followed by some quality as the weekend rolled around.

In total there are 9 canuck athletes here in the Pyrenees Orientales getting our groove on. I have been rooming with Kyle Jones and the Big Man Matty Sharpe. Combo working well, who said a love triangle never works?

This morning I had my first real chance to explore some running trails. Brilliant network of routes here, endless.

This afternoon will watch the final tour stage, should be an exciting finish!

Here are a few pictures from the first week:
