Everything seems to be coming together nicely. Am riding the Grands Montets today - one of the mountains in the valley. Low cloud cover so probably going to take a few hits getting up to full speed. Never mind, no pain no gain.
There's a reasonable amount of snow to contend with, but it really could do with a heavy dump. Luckily the taste of snow is in the air and the temperature's dropped. One of the great things about being here full time is being able to make a judgement call each morning whether or not to go up on the mountain. If it's really crap then there's always tomorrow. It doesn't really matter at the moment, so revved up about being here that Narg would ride in a whiteout blizzard.
