Podium at Velo Vert Festival

The weather forecasters were right, the snow falls Friday night and as we stand on the start line of the latest UCI World Marathon Series race it’s a high probability that heavy snow will restart soon after the gun fires. We launch over the timing belt before slowing as our tyres crunch through the snowy ground, then after a short steep climb we take a sharp left and begin descending like bambi on ice slipping and sliding our way along the trail.
