Transalp 2015 mountain bike race: 625km. 19,000m of ascent. 7 stages.
What inspired you to compete in the Craft BIKE Transalp?
I’ve coached top-10 finishers for this event before, which has sparked me to go out there and do it myself. I’ve ridden certain stages in the past but I’ve never done the complete seven days, so it’ll be my first time bringing it together as an athlete.
I did a stage race in Lanzarote back in January, which was just four days, and that went really well. There will be another three days added onto this race, so it will be interesting…
I’m riding a Cannondale F-Si Lefty. I’ve also got a spare Lefty in case anything goes horribly wrong!
