Training Camp Wrap up/ 제주 자전거팀 캠프

I got back from Jeju do yesterday.  Over the weekend 3 more teammates came to the camp to train with us.  The two guys Eunjoo and Ji Haeng are both super strong!  On Saturday we attempted to ride all the way around Jeju do along the coast but it was extremely windy.  In the small time we had a tail wind we were averaging over 50km/hour with several guys drilling it on the front.  However the rest of the ride was a pretty slow slog with cross and head winds.  On top of this it was only about 40 degrees outside.  Luckily we had a car following our group and people gradually decided to quit riding and get in the car until it was down to 4 of us still riding.  We were freezing cold and tired from the head wind (40km/hr straight on for the last 50km).  After pulling into a gas station to rest we pulled the plug and called our teammates who had given up earlier and gone back to the condo to come pick us up!  We managed to ride over 150km though but it was a little disappointing not to make it all the way around the island. 
Sunday was even colder than Saturday and we decided to ride up the 1100m road again.  The cold weather made several of our riders change their minds about riding all the way up to the top (where it was only about 20F degrees)and eventually only 3 of us made it to the top.  The way down was FREEZING.  It was basically 25 km of straight down hill.  I was warm at the top but I was completely frozen by the time I made it back to our condo. 
The trip was a great week of training and getting to know some of my new teammates better.  Hopefully it will be a great kick start for my training this year and I will be in good racing shape by April.

All the best for the coming season! I've been following Myo Jin's blog and the pictures of the weather looked challenging. And there was the wind, too. California has been rather warm this winter, so lots of riders are in rather decent shape. Looking forward to your race entries in the blog soon.
