I start in the second group with beautiful weather. I'm conservative start because I feel some cold symptoms in the lungs. Little congestion but many riders with flat tires. The climbing is me well, better than average drivers. The descent is also fine but at a T-junction can I just by strongly inhibiting the bike right direction sent, left, wonderful for the adrenaline level.
In Heijenrath I feel that someone at my rear and collides with studded tires is not that nice. I hear him behind me cursing fall.
At the second stop I let my squeaky chain lubrication. Yet too little pre-lubricated.
The final piece firmly drove but with reserve. yet another wonderful trip but
sorry that I could not fully go through slight cold.
