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.
