Tommorow morning (April 3rd) I will travel to Cuba. I've never been before, but I'm told it's nice, and am looking forward to it. I'll be down there for about a week and a half, in order to compete in the first race of my season.
The event is called the ISU International Sports Festival (I think it was previously called the Tour de L'Havane del Este) and it is a four day long stage race based on points. The field should be pretty strong, and pretty big (at least 100-125 I think) with several nationalities being represented.
Since it is the first race of my season, and it is a big one, my expectations are not too high. Merely there to try and find something resembling form. Some of my teammates who are also going, already have some races under their belts, and may stand a better shot at good placings than I. I'm looking forward to racing, and suffering in this new season.
The coolest thing is that I'll miss a week and a half of school, and my teachers all support my leaving!
I'll let you guys know how things went when I get back. See-Ya!
