GP MAssi CCI BTT de Corro d'Amunt

Saturday morning (March 29th) we headed to a Massi Cup in Corro D'Amunt, Spain for the first race of the season. Kiara arrived in Europe Wednesday night and we are staying in south of France for the next few weeks before the world cups. It was a short travel to the race site, only 300 km and it was nice to find some warm weather.

All the team of ocisport (the organisation committee that will be in charge of the world cup in Vallnord) did a great job in organising the race. Special thanks to Albert.

Kiara: "We started behind over 100 guys and ended up catching them on the first climb where everyone was walking. That broke up the women's race because it was really hard to pass. The course was super fast and not very technical which is just what I have not been doing all winter so it was perfect practice.

We headed back to France right after the race. I am now looking forward to 2 weeks of solid training, hopefully with the sun!"

Lets all wish her luck!
