Lemon Chia Oatmeal Pancakes by Hannah Shell

I’ve cycled in Flanders, and I’ve stood on a booth at EuroBike, the largest cycle show in the world, and cycled in Hungary with some of the most amazing people I know.

 Classic situation – You get off your bike and say to yourself: I think, I’ll never do this again. And this is what happened last year after I’ve rode my last lap of the 24 hours on the race track of Zolder/Belgium. Yes, a lot can happen in one year and then happened what should happen: Also in 2018 I was standing at the starting line of the 4 km lap and even felt some anticipation with a view to the forthcoming 24 hours.
