The weekend here at Club La Santa went well, despite racing over such short distances; the speed was somewhat of a shock to my legs which are not used to a fast pace this early in the season, nevertheless it was great training and a lot of fun. Here is a brief review:
Saturday was a 30km race and Sunday was 60km. I came second each day and second overall. Saturday was a fast, non-technical course and Sunday was much more challenging; there was a lot of really fun single track and lots of rocky terrain, in fact part of the course went through a lava field! I liked Sunday's course a lot as it pretty much had everything in it. The weather was cool and it sometimes rained, but I felt at home in the rain and mud :)
Annika Langvad finished in 1st place, followed me in 2nd and Gunn Rita in 3rd place.
It was a really well organised event with great prize money for 1st to 5th place overall (a total of 5000 Euros in prizes), plus stacks of vouchers and gift prizes for all of the other categories. The free paella after party was also pretty cool :)
