Here is a playlist I put together recently and posted on Spotify: Arrows. The photos below were taken while training in Girona over the last few weeks. I’ve completely recovered from the injuries I sustained in the Tour of Qatar and am now working to get back into shape. It feels great to be back on the bike, pushing over the climbs and sprinting for town signs. Recently, the intensity in my training has increased–I’m now doing  a lot of motor-pacing, threshold efforts in the hills and short intense efforts to simulate racing. I’ll return to racing at the Tour of Norway in mid-May and will then ride the Tour of Luxembourg and Tour de Suisse. My race schedule for the second half of the season has yet to be determined. [nggallery id=51]

    Missed you in the Spring Classics, Michael. At least you and David Millar had each other as training partners on the recovery road. Your experience will be huge for Edvald and Lars-Petter. Hopefully thats got the bad luck done and dusted now, and successful racing for you now through to Oct
