Here she is patiently waiting while I was doing the same, (patiently waiting) for the peleton of the 2008 Vuelta a España to come past this afternoon on the Galapagar pass.
It was my only opportunity to see them this time round, even though they were going to go climb Navacerrada and Navafria today, I didn't have time to go so far as I agreed to be taken to Festibike en Las Rozas.
A sort of trade fair, well a trade fair, exactly
you know the sort of thing.
Alejandro Valverde's Pinarello.
Nice attention to detail.
But back to the story. Not much of a story really and all the photos I took of the riders, who shot past, as you would expect, turned out blurry as hell.
Only the back of the struggling Wouter Weylandt, who seemed to be getting dropped, although I have no doubt he got back on all right, came out sort of reasonable.
Anyhow, fun enough.
I will try to come back in less than 6 months to finish up here.
