Riding up to Couvet by going up the areuse and its gorges. It was tougher than I anticipated and took me longer than I wanted.
I was going to see the kids run in their 4th (out of 6) races of the BCN Tour but realised at some point that I would not make Lena's start. At one point on a steep hill the chain got yanked out and blocked, I could not move neither way. It took me close to 10 min to be able to get it out. I tried to block the front wheel on the slope to the side of the dirt road as it was steep and worked withe my hands to free the chain. After many slight advances of deblocking it I finally had it out, whew.
Being short in time I decided once I had reached the upper part of Val de Travers to take the road and really pushed the pace there as the traffic was also heavy. I saw that Lena had just finished, after having won the first two races (what a surprise), she is not feeling quite well lately and she finished now twice being forth. Overall she's still 2nd. She recovered after a moment and forgot her frustration. Nice to see that she has some fire for something which she enjoys.
It started raining really hard and Matti had to run in pouring rain. He did win this race again. They are 3 boys (11 year old) that fight every race for every second. Overall, Matti is also 2nd but he's just 4 sec behind first because on the 2nd race he fell badly at the start and lost a lot of time.
I eventually went home by train as it continued to rain hard. Biked home then from Bôle down but did not record it.
