We arrived safely in Munich 24 hours after flying out. All had gone well on the flight with the entire Italian UCI team taking up most of our section of the plane. Gold medalist Bronzini received a round of applause from the passengers when the Captain announced her success and presence of the plane. Ian was sitting beside a coach who said that he had enjoyed Geelong- it was very different from what he was used to in Europe. We had no trio le getting our bikes and decided to take advantage of the maxi taxi right outside the exit door we were standing at with our bike boxes quickly loaded on. We reached the hotel and parked the boxes on the garage. This morning we set about assembling our steeds- only to fond that Jan’s bike had couple of worn down chain ring teeth, courtesy of a hole on the box and our sliding them along the airport floor- sorry Munich airport for the scratches!
The damage was minor and in next to no time we had the 2 bikes looking as good as new!
It was time to set off on our first ride in Germany…
