A trip of about 5 hours by car took me the mountains of the Vosges, France. Choice was between an olympic distance race or a XL version ( a half distance). As I am in a block of many consecutive weeks of racing, I opted for the Olympic distance race (1500m swim - 40k bike - 10k run).
Always been eager to do this race because over the years I had heard a lot of good things about it. And it didn't disappoint!
Crazy atmosphere on the climbs in the mountains, super organization, lovely weather and a 2nd place for me in this hard race. I couldn't have asked for more!
I will come back here for sure, and maybe for the XL version by then ;)
