European Sprint Cup Constanta (ROU)

A trip to the Black Sea

After a succesfull race in the olympic distance event in Belgium, Mechelen, it was time to compete internationally once more! I had recovered well and was feeling good!

This european cup, a race over the sprint distance, was held in Constanta at the Black Sea in Roumania.

I had a really good start of the swim, a beach start with high waves. The swim start went well and I was swimming comfortably in the lead pack. At the first buoy things changed drastically.. I let my guard down, swam against the buoy, got to a stop and got being swam over by some other athletes. I got pulled under and started panicking a little bit. This meant I lost a lot of time and energy. So unfortunate but these things tend to happen! This way I lost contact with the main pack and found myself further back in the field. Nevertheless I had good legs on the bike and tried to save what was possible. Also on the run I felt really good and managed to catch a whole bunch of athletes from the lead peleton. This way I could still secure a 25th spot.

Given the circumstances and the quality of competitors, finishing 25th isn't bad at all, but I know I can do much better. Luckily my fitness is good and I have 1 more race to go this season. One more chance to show what I can achieve! European cup Alanya (TUR), here I come!
