People are coming from all over the world for FFT... Mostly people are from the land down under, but there's a few of us who are in the US.
The US based contingent have one slight advantage, its a 6 hour flight to France, the Aussie boys have 21. Any advantage that brings is negated because where we are you can't ride outside for about 5 months of the year. Trying to build the fitness that you need to keep up in just 3 short months (because these FFT boys are quite fit) is a challenge, especially when you have a job and a family that enjoy your company!
So every day I'm getting more and more emails as members of the Team are packed and transiting their way to France.
The excitement is building. The stories and the fun starts in one more day!
