Adam Hansen Blog: Cairns to Oman via Qatar

From my last post on the Adam Hansen Blog from the Tour Down Under to here in Oman a lot has happened. I traveled From Australia, then to Cairns for one night at my mother's place, then to my home in the Czech Republic for a nice short week, enjoying the lovely snow - I love it.

A Good Start for the Team

Dear VeloVeritas readers, tables have turned in Omega Pharma Lotto: we have had some success already in the season. Three wins is nice for the team at this early stage in the season - two with Phil [Gilbert, the 1st Stage of the Volta ao Algarve and the recent Montepaschi Strade Bianche] and one with André [Greipel, Stage 4 of the Volta ao Algarve]. André also bagged third in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne last week, and so the team's moral is much better than last year at this time.

Adam Hansen Blog – From Sun to Snow

Sorry for the radio silence recently - I went off-grid a little, needed it after the Tour Down Under, and caught up with the family in Australia. After the TDU I headed from a sunny Adelaide to rainy Cairns before leaving for my home in the Czech Republic - the place to be.
Adam Hansen tries to keep warm.
