The stage today was calmer than yesterday with good roads all the way. It was warmer though and staying hydrated was essential.
I felt very good since the beginning and stayed with the peloton to save energy. The final lap was a very hectic one, with small roads, many uphill. Perfect for me.
I managed to stay with the first group and made it to the final sprint which wasn’t easy considered the increased pace.
Overall, I am happy with the result and how the stage went. The legs feel good and I am optimistic about the next two stages.
Tomorrow the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team will continue to show what’s possible with diabetes on Stage 3 at Tour du Limousin with a 177.9 kilometer race that starts in Usaac and finishes in Chamberet.
