regalphis I'm currently at the airport, returning to Amsterdam, where it's probably ten degrees colder and raining. Feeling saudade... #lisbon 1d

regalphis I've spent the day cycling south of Lisbon. After a tiring day in the saddle, this was out view on the ferry. 3d

regalphis It's definitive, I'm not going to Cameroon. The organisation had to revoke the invitation from three of the six European teams due to financial reasons. Really sad but there will be more opportunities this year!

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, when me and Melle were preparing for the tour of Cameroon. At least we're in good shape now. 🚴

Don't forget to submit your Amsterdam pictures about "Live life on the go" with the #LiveLifeUnplugged and #PowerUppAmsterdam tags. Maybe you'll be able to pull of one of @beupp_nederland's hydrogen fuel cells and become energy independent. See @seemycity for more details!

regalphis Window shopping - I took this photo just before the holidays. The curiosity and desire of two people dreaming away behind the shop window.
_
Btw, did you take your #LiveLifeUnplugged photos yet? @seemycity is giving away one of @beupp_nederland Upp power packs, in a contest about "life on the go" in Amsterdam.
_
You can be one of the first in the Netherlands to own the hydrogen powered power supply pack Upp. Go to @beUpp_nederland to learn more about this new product and to www.seemycity.com to see the full set of rules for the contest.

regalphis Yesterday we received the message that we probably couldn't start in the Tour of Cameroon. I can't tell for sure on what arguments they made the decision other than that the decision was based on budgetary grounds.
_
Not exactly what you want to hear two weeks before leaving. Vaccinations, weeks of training, travel insurance, renewing my Elite license, making my bicycle Africa-proof, arranging sponsors for the team. It could all be in vain.
_
We're currently contacting the organization asking if there's anything we could do. Let's hope for a happy end.

regalphis You may have noticed something different in my most recent posts. Yes, of course, they include cyclists. But I was referring to something else. They are shot with the Shimano Sport Camera.
_
Shimano was kind enough to provide me with their newest sport camera for my cycling adventure in Cameroon. So far you've only seen stills but it's actually an action camera built to film the action within the race! The thrill of the race caught with the camera.
_
Crashes (hopefully as little as possible), sprint battles, jaw-dropping descents, insane crowds alongside the road, the atmosphere of Cameroon, you name it. In the Tour of Cameroon, from 13 till 22 March, I'll try my best to capture the essence of the race in bite-size snippets of adventure loaded goodness. I can't wait!

regalphis The twilight zone
_
The past few weeks I've been training about 15-16 hours a week doing long training rides. In the cold, in the rain, occasionally some sun. Sometimes I can share my struggles with some friends, but mostly I'm alone. Each day a different direction, each ride a different goal.
_
Pre-season. It's the period loaded with wonder and anticipation; You know the race, the smell of sweat during the race, the sounds of shouting cyclists around you, the fear of crashes when hearing the typical sound of metal hitting the tarmac, the feeling of losing, the hope of winning. You're constantly trying to get on par with the competition. The only problem is, you don't know how good the competition is. So you just keep going...

regalphis What a wonderful morning. The ground was covered with frost, it was a little foggy and it was sunny. Except for the cold we had a really good time during our early training ride.
_
I came prepared and brought my iPhone and an action camera. Unfortunately, I forgot to fully charge them, draining the battery pretty fast in the cold. Next time I should bring my @beupp_nederland fuel cell too... Anyway, I've been busy training lately, to prepare for the Tour of Cameroon! The cycling race takes place in a month from now so I'm trying to get some fitness back after a period of little training.
_
I'll keep you informed in the next couple of weeks! For those of you who are interested, you can also follow me on #Strava 🚴🚴🚴 #freekincameroon #tourducameroun

In the picture you see @mariannehope charging her iPhone (you don't necessarily have to hold it in the air in order for it to work, don't worry) Go to the @seemycity account to check out the details of this contest and how to participate!
