So airfreight it is..... the shipping agent I was using has been telling me it would take 4-5 weeks to get the bike via ship to Antwerp. Spoke to the actual shipping company yesterday and yes it's 4 to 5 weeks sailing time but the next ship doesn't leave for 2 weeks and there's a 10 day precessing in Antwerp. There goes that idea then.

Now Ralph and I can join forces again and I don't have to sweat the next few weeks wondering if the bike will make it on time. I don't want my Spa result to be DNA. Did Not Arrive.

My high tech race shop was abuzz with activity today. Tires are mounted, plastic crates are full and lights have been tested. The bike may ship this week but if it has to sit around the waiting for the ship to fill then   
we will end up airfreighting it. I hope it leaves this week as i'm sick of looking at it.
