Nederlands

Made it up to Zeddam today. the drive was a bit long, but i guess we made it so everything is good. The weather up here is pretty bad. It was a super hard frost last night so it almost looked like it had snowed. after lunch it had warmed up quit a bit though so we headed out on a ride. The course is only about 50 meters from the hotel and to get there we ust ride across some farmers field. There are tons of single track trails right here to in the woods. It is quite a nice change from riding along the canal in Izegem for sure. The world parcourse is pretty cool. It starts out mostly flat and fast, then dives dwn this wicked steep off camber twisty descent, back up a huge set of stair and the rolls around up top for a while. Being holland there is even a section around a windmill. Teh whoel team is here now. It is a bit different crew than we have had the rest of the year, differet mechanics and soigners and stuff, but they still get the job done, if maybe in a more chaotic stressed way. I think that is the differance betweent he Belgians and Americans. The belgians are pretty chill, they just focus on the task at hand and get it done, no stress no worries. Americans tend to want to get a little more excited about things and make everything a big deal, but they still get it done in the end. We have a meeting at 5, then dinner so untill then I am ging to lay in my bed and watch a movie. Thanks for all the encouragment from everyone and I will try to keep you stoked. Later on...

Vixx! Just landed in Amsterdam. I'm gonna play here for two days then head to the venue. Look for the whole clan out there starting Saturday morning. We'll be the loud drunk ones with the big Cross Crusade flags and beer stained clothes.
