Roc n'roll

Today was the Roc D'Azur marathon - my last race of the season - and I won. It was my third victory here in Frejus, such a perfect end to a long, successful season. Now I can sit back, relax and cheer on team mates Irina Kalentieva, Alban Lakata, Robert Mennen and Wolfram Kurschat who are all racing this weekend. I'll also be serving kaiserschmarrn - an Austria desert and a big favourite of Alban's - at the Canyon booth in the EXPO area. Come along and say hello!

I'll write more about the last few weeks, including the Worlds and the Roc Marathon, in a couple of days....thanks for following me! Have fun and enjoy the off season!

World Marathon Championships, Ornans, France, 2012

Yesterday was the World XCM championships. It was raining (a lot) and the course was exceptionally challenging and dangerous...I survived (just) and finished 5th. I'd have liked to do better, but 5th is not so bad :) I'll write more soon, but now we're relaxing in the south of France. It's the famous Roc D'Azur bike festival this weekend and on Friday I will race the Roc 83 marathon, hopefully in the sunshine! 


1st Annika Langvad (Den)
2nd Gunn Rita (Nor)
3rd Esther Suss (SUI)
4th Irina Kalentieva (RUS)
5th Sally Bigham (GBR)

Before: clean and dry

After: wet and very, very muddy!
