The winter comes nearer!

 

Hello everyone, it's been a bit of time since I updated. The preparation for the competition season is continuing at full speed.

In mid-August I spent a week with the Swiss junior team in Les Cernets in the Jura. During this week I have used up my rollerskis taking advantage of the roads with few traffic and even "trespassing" in France.

I returned to Davos to train for two weeks and then I went to Andermatt for the Swiss Nordic Weekend: a weekend of tests on roller skiing and running.

The first test competition was a prologue on Friday on skating roller skis for a distance of 3.3km, where I ended up in 4th place.

On Saturday there was a mass start classic roller skiing of 7.1km, in which I ended up on the 3th step of the podium.

After 2 days of testing I was 3th place in the general ranking. Sunday morning an uphill running with handicap start of 6.5km separated me from the podium ... but unfortunately I was not able to defend the 3th rank and I finished the race with the 10th time.

I'm happy with how the tests went, though not yet at the top of the form I was able to be with the first on roller skis. At the end of October I will perform the performance tests again in Magglingen,  where I will have direct confrontation with myself ;-)

 

See you soon!
