Holy days of cycling

I'm alive. Andy Schleck too. Not in the same place unfortunately (for me) but both doing well. 
Weather in Italy isn't good but my son is back training with his team and I'm back supporting him.
Weather in Luxembourg isn't splendid as well but next race for Andy should be Vuelta al Pais Vasco, so Heuskal Herria (or 'north of Spain')... A different country, a different sky. It's raining there this week... I hope it will be better the next one.
I'm watching the North Classics and I guess Andy is watching them too. Next Sunday is a holy day: it's the Ronde! don't talk me about Easter lunch. In add it's going to rain all day so no regret and tv on!
