This was the second time I’ve run in the European Champs (the last time in 2008), unfortunately now I’m in the worst shape I’ve been in for some years, but I decided to race anyway and chance getting some World Cup points in the sprint so I could race in the Post Finance sprint next month – but alas, things …

Well well well, it’s been a while since I wrote anything about myself on here! I’m making bit of a habit out of neglecting my blog for months and then squeezing everything into one giant post! I suppose it seems a bit lazy of me, but I think it was more a case of me just trying to spare everyone …

France Rocks!

Quite literally too… After a week here I have 2 bad ankles, but not bad enough to stop me enjoying the awesome terrain. Before coming to France I had only heard negative things; ‘It’s soo green’, ‘It’s soo rocky’, ‘It’s way too hard’, ‘Don’t waste your time, save yourself for another year’.
