Sunday, after the race,I was very eager to get back to the hotel as I was hungry, sweaty and tired, so after filing the photos, I headed towards the shuttle bus. Obviously, the bus driver didn’t speak a word in English but we managed to agree that the bus goes to the train station and he didn’t know when. He seemed to imply that we were waiting for someone, so waiting we were.
After 20 minutes, a group of riders approached the bus finally, so we were able to set off. I caught a few words and I came to the conclusion that they were either Dutch or Belgian. Not long after that, they started to snap pictures of each other with an iPhone and after a while, they asked me to take a picture of their group. I was happy to oblige, however, the iPhone wasn’t the best tool for the job. I pulled out my camera and snapped few shots, though the photo below isn’t necessarily much better than the iPhone’s. My excuse is that we were in a hurry and on a bus.
It soon turned out that I bumped into Thijs Al and Eddy Van Ijzendoorn. We had a quick chat but then I had to get off the bus as it happened to pass by my hotel.
It was good to meet you guys, see you in Plzen!
