WHAAAT?? A date, on a Cycling Blog!! You must be kidding,my son would say to me.
Not exactly a date but close enough.I am talking about my first experience as National Team Manager for the Mongolia Cycling Federation(MCF) at the latest UCI Road World Championships in Doha.
To cut the story short....
The morning after my late arrival in Doha,I had an email from MCF General Secretary Naran Zundui delegating me as Team Manager for the Championships...
I was like a kid with his new favourite toy.I don't want to sounds monotonous.
During the championships I had the pleasure to meet great new people,see friends of the past, attend meetings, visit the commissaires office & much more. We had long,hot & exhausting days but the ambience of the UCI RAOD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2016 made it easier.
The MCF represantation was composed by 5 riders,1 Coach and Me as Team Manager.I had the pleasure to be a DS(Directeur Sportif), Mechanic,Soigneur for the riders while they were training or resting and working alongside their coach.
It was a great place to see the SD logo amongst the big cycling brands during the championships, but mostly important enabled me to meet some of our supporters around the globe.We are looking forward to see all of them again soon.
A typical day at the Championships:
- 0530 Wake up call
- 0630 Breakfast
- 0730 Training ride for few hours before the temperature going up
- 0900 Attend Meetings at UCI Event Hotel
- 1200 Maybe lunch
- Shopping for rider's food
- 1600 Chillax by the pool
- 1800 Meeting again
- 2000 Dinner of course
- 2200 Bed time
We are now working to get the MCF team across for the CycloCross World Championships 2017 in Luxembourg.If you like to support them please get in touch with us.
