The bikes are ready to go

So it's finally time for the bikes to start their journey through Europe down to Almeria in southern Spain where the Tuareg Rally starts. That means no more time for fiddling with my bike. And I just finished everything on it. The night before the bikes are to be loaded on the truck.

It is kind of funny that no matter how far in advance you start planning a race it always comes down to the last minute. And it's not just me you know. Everyone is doing the same thing and it doesn't matter if it's a small race or the Dakar. You're always going to do last minute changes and be deprived of sleep when the deadline is getting closer. If you got more time you will just do more stuff but you will keep going until there is no more time. That's just the way it is I guess.

Tomorrow we are heading down to the city of Örebro, in Sweden, where we will meet up with the rest of the guys and load the bikes and all the gear on the service truck. I'll be sure to get some pics of all the bikes and the truck.
