Since I came from US it's been some intense weeks alternating hard training and work. So time flew. FAST. Now first race is only one week away.
Baise Outdoor Quest in China starts April 18:th and I have the opportunity to race with a new solid and experienced team. In strong competition we're gonna take on the 4 days of stage racing. A bit different from the non stop racing I did last year in the Adventure Racing World Series. Getting rest and sleep at hotel might seem like luxury but in exchange the pace and output will be much higher each day. So 4 days of racing adds up in a total winner after last day.
Corse seems decisive, with a lot of vertical climbing both running and biking. We'll see about that biking, there's a risk of hike bike or push bike. Not my favorite but once there I'll carry that bike as far as needed. And then of course kayaking, and I'm stronger than ever so really looking forward to it. In addition there will be some swimming and abseiling as well. All the info is still a bit confusing, but it dosen't really effect me, things will clear eventually. At the latest during the race and then it's just pushing trough what ever happens as usual. The core of Adventure Racing.
Really looking forward to get into race mood and to get to push some limits. I feel ready and with home work done even though it's kind of a new game.
