In Mittenwald.

Arrived in Mittenwald on Wednesday after a 30 hour journey from Dunfermline, though this did include a 5 hour rest stop in Peebles to allow Dave to do all his packing.

We have managed to get signed on for the race and we´re now just hanging around the town feeling increasingly nervous as Zero Hour approaches tomorrow morning at 10am. Having the "Scottish Cycling Team" van is attracting a lot of attention, particularly as it is being driven around town by three out-of-shape looking middle-aged blokes. Duncan, driver and team manager, is enjoying the Weissbier as Dave and I sip from water bottles and try to stay out of the sun.

All the other racers look impossibly fit and honed. I´ve got The Fear.
