Hello,

As there seem to be quite some active WWs in the Lake Geneva region (doesn't matter whether on the French or Swiss side), wouldn't it be nice to meet up?

In ten days, the last stage of the Tour de Romandie will be in Geneva (5th of May) https://www.tourderomandie.ch/stage/5eme-etape/ - the final rider is supposed to finish the course around 3pm. I will try to take some photos and would be up to meet afterwards, maybe around 4:30 (?) for a late coffee or early beer. What do you think?

Best

Konstantin

Is that you chasing Quintana? He looks positively terrified. I’ll bet that knocked a full 5 seconds off his time for fear of that guy catching him.

Nah, I am blonde and scare people with my beard ;) That was the last ITT where I took photos, Tour de France 2016. Quintana lost badly that day.

There’s a free group ride up to the Torgon finish the day before near Aigle with Alain Rumpf http://aswisswithapulse.com also on Sunday AM Katusha local guys doing a ride at 9:30 leaving from gva. Check out their website. I’ll bring my boys (4 and 6) down to the race Sunday at some point but have no clue when or how long.

I don't have a proper road bike yet, so I didn't want to join the Katusha ride. Went only for like an hour or so, the weather was a little meh, and I have issues from running too much (tria prep) in the last days. I'll put a few more photos in the Pro Thread
