Val d’Or – Day 10
Val d’Or was as we remembered it, a small town with not much to do. We are staying for 5 nights at the CitedelOr, which is an old gold mine and the site of the Time Trial on Thursday. Unfortunately Julie has come down with a cold and upset stomach, so we are hoping she gets better quick. Got to go for a ride and then we went to the official introduction of the teams for the Tour d’l Abitibi. It is exciting to see Connor with the US National Team and certainly a proud moment for Julie and me. He appears happy and excited about the race. Had pizza for dinner with Pat Putt (son Tanner is racing for the Waste Management Team).
