Only one more day before the annual Cyclassics race in Hamburg, Germany will have me show up at the start line (and hopefully at the finish line as well – not too long after, if all goes well despite the lack of sufficient annual riding kilometers in my legs).

Am glad, though, that in Hamburg I will have a full gear set at my command to get through the 103km of racing. Also, because the terrain is not at all as flat as it is generally believed to be by non-Northern Germans. Don’t get fooled – there are even MTB single speeders frolicking up and down Harburger Hills:
