The welcome bag included the above offering + an apple and a can of Red bull!...oh and a rather large ball of Austrian chocolate complete with a pix of Mozart on the silver paper...so far I've managed to steer clear of all offerings. At least it's not as bad as the WMG where I discovered a (in)continence pad in my welcome bag!!!!!
Yesterday's prologue beat the somewhat shambolic WMG races by a country mile...there were chip timing problems and the race, slated to start latish in the evening, started 1 hour late and was cancelled half way through when it became too dark. By the time the race started I was well and truly over it and started the 1.4km race as though it was a 500m track time trial and died somewhere along the way!...took ~2minutes. I was the last female starter and the first male rider, starting 30 s after me overtook me on the narrow tight last corner....crazy organisation and truly lacking in thought.
Hopefully the tough road race today wont be another disaster as that would completely kill off the event for future years since there are already some really pissed off cyclists.
