Shenzhen Universaide

I have made it to Shenzhen China and I am starting to settle in now. I had my first ride on the track today which was good. I have my first official sessions tomorrow on the track and road. I got to ride the last 1km of the road race which is tight with a couple of turns then wide open for 250m finnish straight. The finnish really suits me so I am hoping the couse isnt too hilly so I can get there. The village is massive with 10 14 story apartment blocks. The Chinese are very helpful and polite. The weather is very hot and I am pleased to say that I am not suffering too bad mostly because of the heat chamber training at Otago University. In the New Zealand team we have a great support team to help us with everything. Steve the team doctor is going to support me along with Martin the chef de mission at my races.
