Mountain Biking 50:29 [3] 13.96 km (3:37 / km) +57m 3:33 / km
ahr:92 max:133

Along the Doubs west of Besançon: rode with Urs through some royal woods relatively flat (hunting grounds for the kings) to the Royal Saline which is a UN Heritage site. It was built in the late 18th century for manufacturing salt. The buildings and gardens are situation in a huge circle and the exhibit is very fascinating and interesting. Was well worth stopping here.

PS: no bike O for me today. Urs picked me up and we went to Besançon for the night. My thumb hurt me quite a bit and searched for a brace or at least some tape, but this monday being a day off (Pentecote) everything was closed.

Mountain Biking 49:04 [3] 13.79 km (3:34 / km) +88m 3:27 / km

Riding back to the car quite fast as dark thunder clouds were looming behind up.

ahr:113 max:149

Long distance race in Prémaron one of the most difficult areas for foot-O, ski-O and now we're trying it for bike-O.
Very O-technical area as well as riding-technical, very suited for elite athletes but most over 65 yrs have problems riding in that area.
I had to start first (again, the 6th time in a series: Italy, France Bernex last weekend and now!!) with the dominator in the W70 right behind me. And of course, I made a huge mistake to #1, 7 min detour and fell pretty hard as well. Bruised my nose and have a contusion in my left thumb. Knees are bruised but ok. Continued anyway as I seem to function just fine. Made no other major mistake, just too slow and out of steam today. My legs were hurting from all the effort yesterday. Also my arms and back had enough from pushing the bike, though today was much less. But the terrain was rough and in spots hard to ride. Even the forest roads had those white rocky sections, uphill I didn't have the strength to push through, so I walked/jogged.
Another time I tripped over my own feet (a twig between them) while jogging and landed again face down on my knees.
Kept getting stronger and faster though towards the end but it wasn't long enough to secure a no. 2 finish, so I was 3rd again :-(. Oh well.

Mountain Biking race 59:03 [4] 4.37 km (13:31 / km) +100m 12:08 / km
ahr:117 max:156

Bike-O race in Prémanon, France. Swiss championships in sprint. This part of the woods is extremely rocky and undulating. Had to walk a lot, pretty much hop and and off during the race as I couldn’t ride neither some up- nor downhills with rocks and mud. Don’t seem to have that kind of strength quite yet (or will I ever have it again?).
The map and the course were very hard to read and complicated.
