Ooita (大分), Kyushuu, Japan
I could be in the front group, and get a top 10 for the last race week-end of the season, and what may become – who knows – my last race. Who knows… I have a lot on my shoulders : all the French riders are back to their country, and we currently are the 5th team of Japan, with two chasers just a few points behind. That is why I went back to racing seriously, and why I took my flight yesterday morning to get to the south Island of Japan, Kyushuu. I am glad to have brought back home some points. A lot is still to do though, with a 120km road race coming tomorrow.
