This year I had to choose between Embrunman and Challenge Vichy. As much as I was looking forward to Embrunman, I was sad not to be in Vichy to defend my title.
Recovery after Embrunman has been very quick and initial plans have changed. My best triathlon memories date from Vichy last year. That race will remain special as you can only have one first international win. I’m looking forward to try to replicate some of those emotions this Sunday. I’ve never done two iron distance races in such a short period, but I felt really good in the past week what makes me quite optimistic about this race.
