Knoxville - Rockwood
It´s usually boring to talk about the weather. Yet as there is so much difference between Austria and over here, let me tell you: One day of rain in 3 weeks, top temperature today: 39 degrees Celisus. Sounds a lot better than a rainy summer back home? Yes and no. We love to ride in the sunshine, but the heatwave we are facing since yesterday is quite energy sapping and will accompany us for another week. The heat has some noticeable effects already: Our jerseys start to change color. From black today to black and white. How? It´s due to the salt we sweat and lose. In that case flat tyre #3 was a welcome pitstop on our way to Rockwood.
