1st rest day – 2nd chef battle results #saxobanktinkoffbank #dailystews #vuelta2012

So we made it to the other side of Spain after 1258 km in a car from Andorra to Sanxenxo, 14,5 hours in total with a lot of coffee pit-stops. We met Søren from sky in the very beginning and decided to drive in a convoy all the way – good company for all of us on a long drive like that.

We arrived at 00:30 and went in to town to find something to eat and then straight to bed because rest day was awaiting the day after. The rest day is extra work day for me and Troels, but we were prepared.

Yesterday the Race came right by our Hotel – so I was lucky to snap a photo of Alberto, Bruno, Sergio and Benjamin going up hill.

So after the race dinner was on:

  • rawfood salad – carrot, apple, blueberries and pecan nuts
  • pork tenderloin, grilled fennel and pickled fennel – micro herbs
  • Pearl barley “risotto” with lemon zest and chives
  • Potato mash with tarragon and black pepper
  • Chicken, broccoli and hazelnuts
  • Whole grain pasta and tomato sauce.
  • Fruit
  • strawberries and chocolate

Tonight is the last night at this hotel, it’s been amazing to stay at the same place for such a long time ( 3 days) tomorrow the whole team moves again !

So Friday is stage 3 of the vuelta chef battle – Peter from BMC is the brain behind the ingredients this time and he has chosen:

  1. apple
  2. potato
  3. chives

So remember to check in for that… And now that we are at it here are the results from the last chef battle:

This time we had 265 votes – good stuff :) Keep it coming!!!
I need to get down to the truck now,
