I’ve arrived in Portugal and cleared security with much less fuss than when I tried to enter the UK. One of the organisers found me at the airport after a while and I headed towards the race accommodation with a couple of people form Team Navigator and a woman from Team Buff.
I was not particularly surprised when I arrived to find Chris and Mike operating on Chris’ mountain bike. Kati is still in transit somewhere and the rest of the team have headed off to register.
