Giro del Valdarno 2015, Florence, Italy

Debuted at my first race in Italy yesterday, racing for Zappi's Pro Cycling at the Giro del Valdarno 2015 in the Tuscan hills near Florence.

A hilly 4+ hours of racing 160km in 30deg heat after a brief bout of illness was certainly tough, so I was pleased to get around and ended up with a fairly respectable top 30 place (out of 180 riders) - 2nd Zappi rider home.

Looking forward to the next one this weekend where I should hopefully be fully recovered, feeling a lot stronger and playing my A game :)
