At the 6.7.14, I participated after a 2 year break at a MTB-Marathon over the distance of 42km.
My shape was all right, but not perfect. Of course I had to line in the first row. An old habbit. After about 5km, I knew that I couldn’t hold this speed much longer. I had a short, small breakdown and I rode the next 10k quite easy, to recover a bit.
For the recovery I´m still waiting, because my muscles were all sour. Finally I made it, just 5k before the finish line on the 1st place in my AG Sen2.But than I got a bonk, because I thought so close before the finish, I don´t have to eat anything nor to take a gel, but I was wrong. And lost more than 4mon on the last 5k and as well the victory in my AG. At the end, I took the 22nd place overall and 4th in my AG.
