I am not really a holiday kind of gal - aside from my birthday - but in the spirit of giving, i am giving you all a good laugh. This photo was taken in my teens when i went through that ill-advised permed hairdo phase.
Tomorrow morning I leave for Koksijde, Belgium for the next round of the World Cup circuit. We will see if my hard training lately will pay off so quickly. There is probably some truth, though, to Jonas' comment yesterday that if all it took was a month of hard work to be at the top level of racing, then everyone would be a pro. He may be right but still my fingers are crossed and my motivation is high.
