Stage 7 – Gazpacho and fresh figs #TDF #teamsaxotinkoff

This was the first day where the heat was absolutely scorching- I was boiling constantly and did everything in double the time I would normally do… Being half Scottish and half danish doesn’t help coping with the heat and funny enough I don’t like the rain to much either… Anyway I did my things.

Mid day the danish Radio Station P3 called me and asked if I would be in their show later the same afternoon – well of course! And so I was – It went well except for the two times where I just forgot words for completely normal things… Thanks to the 33*c that boiled my brain. Well well , they where happy and they are gonna call back again later in the tour to check in.

Happy news – My truck is ready and my dear colleague Ivan is driving all the way to Nice to pick it up and drive it back – He is just the best! Can’t wait to see that truck!
