Koppenberg & Santa

Hi all, 
Hope everything is well state side and the holidays are going well. Here in Belgium the days are short and the temp is dropping, soon to be Kansas like weather on Friday just in time for the world Cup in Zolder which is looking to be a crazy fast course this year with a lack of rain in the past few weeks and lots of road sections its probable gonna look more like a crit out there the a cross race.
Today we went to the Tour de Flanders Museum with the Belgian "burgs" in the background. We also got to walk up the Koppenberg which was a great experience, and was cool to see that great piece of cycling history. The museum was also fun to see, it had a lot of old cycling goodies, including some pre WWI race bikes. And lots of old school jerseys 
Tonight we had a big christmas eve dinner made by Els, for those that don't know about camp there is 20 riders here and Els cooks every night for all of us its pretty amazing how she is able to wipe up all this food every night, but this one was special with some seasonal touches thrown in. Santa also showed up in the form of Mario the photographer, it was quiet the site.
Marry Christmas,
