2016 mtb marathon in Tyrol, Austria

when reading about this year’s mtb marathon and events , quite a few caught my attention. one of them was the event in Kirchberg, Tyrol near the famous kitzbühler mountains, well known to skiers.

they offer several distances , varying in length and difficulty.  i went for the 46 km and a climb of 2000 m, called the medium plus.

i knew i would have to do things different here, if i wanted to finish the race.

After all, my first race didn’t go too well.

but things went well this time, no musclecramps at all. i gave my best, had a blast and will come again.
