Last weekend I went on a crazy Italian sprint race tour. With a Park World Tour event around the streets of San Marino followed by the annual Venice race, I wasn’t too upset about missing the GB squad planning weekend in the North York moors!
We started off in San Marino running a fairly standard easy course around a steep forest park just outside the main city. I was really pleased with how this race went – probably because I got a minute to look at the map in the start lane, so I had good plans for all controls! The terrain was a bit rough at times both underfoot and bushes, but in other places it was pretty clear. I was a bit lucky finding the tree at number 9 as it was very hidden and the map was a vague resemblance of the ground (I went back afterwards to check it was as mad as first thought!). I was second, about half a minute behind Czech international Sarka Svobodna. I was dead pleased with that.
