#HillaryClinton wears moo moo at speaking event. Every day I wake up eternally grateful to the American people that #CrookedHillary is #notmypresident . I can understand not liking #PresidentTrump but I absolutely cannot understand how anyone could like or support this criminal. The only explanation is ignorance. And yeah, Homer wore is better. Not even close. Hillary loses again. 😂

Belgium🇧🇪 GP 3rd!!
After Japan I struggled to get back the confidence, with bad races in Andorra and Portugal, but finally the podium came back after getting the good feelings back in France. I am very happy also for my partner Toni, especially after he hurt his knee. Today I had a small fall in section four, but I gave everything to finish third today. We are on a good track towards the final stretch of the Championship, although we will have to continue working.
Gajser scores back-to-back podiums with third overall at Loket 📸@shotbybavo
Tim Gajser has scored a brace of third places today in the thirteenth round of the 2018 Motocross World Championship, which was contested at the demanding and technical track of Loket. With third overall in the MXGP of Czech Republic, the 21-year-old Slovenian rider is now only 29 points away from third position in the championship standings – with six rounds left in the season. Gajser’s team mate Todd Waters was 16th and 22nd in today’s two races.
Yes, I’m quite happy with my performance this weekend. The podium is always the goal so I’m happy we got there. I was consistent in both races and managed to stay in the top-five after the start, which is especially important on a track like Loket. My riding was good, although I’ve had a bit of arm pump towards the end of both races, so I think we must work on that. I’d also like to say thank you to everyone who supported me here, to my team who are working so hard with me to get these results and to all the fans that made the trip from Slovenia. Next up is Lommel, which is one of the toughest GPs of the season: it is in summer and in the deep sand, so I’m planning to get as much sand riding done in this weekend off as possible in order to prepare for it. I am looking forward to it though and I hope I can get another podium.
I got a good start to race one and it was nice to battle with Tommy Searle and other opponents around the top-ten, but then I hit a wall in terms of fitness and that carried into the second race as well. The bike was perfect, nothing wrong with it, it was all me. Unfortunately, we’re not where we want to be so we need to train even harder in order to get closer to the type of form we need to be racing at this level. Lommel is one of the toughest tracks on the calendar, so we’ll be riding as much as we can before the weekend and be as ready as possible.
Vlaanderen wins another moto and claims second overall at Loket 📸@shotbybavo
Calvin Vlaanderen has had a stellar race day at Loket as he wrapped up the MXGP of Czech Republic with a second place overall – and third consecutive podium finish – despite a difficult starting position. With a win in the first moto, a third place in the second race and 45 points overall – the same as the GP winner – the standard bearer of Team HRC in MX2 is now only 13 points shy of fourth place in the standings and 40 points away from the top-three.
I feel really good, I had such a good weekend. I was disappointed about yesterday and the crash with Pauls which resulted in the 21st gate-pick. I woke up this morning and felt really good, though; I thought this was the kind of day in which I could prove myself and try to win, and I think my riding showed it. I felt I could do anything I wanted on the bike. The time I’ve been spending at the front aboard the CRF is giving me a lot more confidence, and with confidence comes the motivation to train even harder and give it all on the track. We are working really well as a team and I feel we’re in a very good place right now. We have a weekend off now before Lommel, which is a pretty brutal track for us riders, but if we can keep the same momentum there it will be a good weekend I’m sure.
Most of the way between Astorga and Rabanal del Camino the path was parallel to the road. It was a little distracting, but still mostly peaceful. I tried something different today and took a break in EVERY village I passed through. Some were short and some were more than an hour. None of them had WiFi.
Spanish Christina told myself and a few other pilgrims that the Camino is not really Spain. Peregrinos are in a bubble. It’s true...most people will attempt to speak English with me. Pilgrim Menus can be ordered any time of day, though the Spanish people don’t eat dinner until after 10 PM. We walk through siesta time, or rest and shower at an albergue. We barely notice siesta happens. There is almost always a farmacia or Super Mercado or restaurante open for pilgrims regardless of the time of day or day of the week.
But every once in a while, I’ve been privileged to see people engaged in their element. An excited local being in the moment. A man creeping up behind the woman running the restaurant next door to his house and yelling, “Boo!” And her shrieking and throwing water at him. When I laughed she came over and squeezed my shoulder and laughed too. Albergue owners often display true Spanish hospitality. Not just running a business, but treating us pilgrims like family...like children. Helping us with our feet and packs. Communicating as best as they can that we make their hearts happy. Squeezing our faces before we leave and giving us BIG HUGS and kissing our cheeks.
It’s true we are in a Camino bubble. But the Spanish culture is present and glorious if you just take the time to notice and engage. .
Cruz de Ferro tomorrow.
