Winner dinner #teamsaxotinkoff #LaVuelta

Today we did the first real transfer – now it truly feels like the race has started although it was a short one just under 60 km. Destination Santiago de Compostela. It’s good to go somewhere new, staying in the same place for to long makes you a little crazy…

thats the cycling circus life for you! Well lets not get lost in pilgrim traveling, what has happened since last – Nico won stage 2, and he got the mountain jersey, sprint jersey and the combination jersey (thats a new one for me…) So we celebrated with a well deserved glass of wine and a tasty dinner. Bjarne was there and did a toast to Nico and the team, good spirits for sure.

Yesterday Jonathan and I went shopping with the company of Bjarnes son Jesper, he has been hired for Saxo Bank to do some back stage videos of the team during the whole Vuelta – so he decided to come along for the trip. Come along with us: And remember to check in daily here for more back stage videos of the team. After a good shopping trip, the guys from GCN came by to film a few small “how to do” videos – some tasty dressings for your daily salad, pasta or meats :) Stay tuned for that. Last nights dinner:

  • salad of cooked beets, red and green cabbage and balsamic dressing
  • romaine and heart salad with mustard vinaigrette
  • thinly sliced cold veal with rocket and parmesan
  • risotto with oyster mushrooms and truffle oil
  • salmon baked with ginger, orange and honey
  • spiced chicken wings
