2009 Annum perdidi/Mallorca


I have lost the year…

The plan was to take part in London – Edinburgh – London.

Unfortunately my season 2008 ended with a deep impact:export--4220394

Anyway, my decision to sidestep the running child was allright.

Added to bad pain, learning to walk – you never believe what a complicated process walking is in fact, until you just can ´t –       There happend to be a severe malfunction of bonehealing.

This fact necessitated at least four operations.

Now, since 26.10.09 im capable of work again after 318 days.

At least, the insurance and the doctors thought, it could be helpful if I just get out of here for a little while. I got permission to take plane to Mallorca for two weeks. There I hired a racingbike and rode around a little. Meanwhile I missed LEL and, after painful thinking, it was just reasonable to cancel Africa.

If anybody had told me, I would celebrate my 10th year without a car cycling Mallorca, he would have got a punch.

But it was nice, actually, because August is too hot for most people
