Rain rain go away! Im in Italy and I don't think ive ever seen Irish rain be so relentless and torrential! The original plan was to race two stages on the Saturday and four on the Sunday but unfortunately the weather turned sour and plans changed. Three stages on Saturday and down to just one today, Sunday, due to the weather. There was a good mix of terrain for this race from technical rocky, roots to wide open fast hillside runs with slippery slalom style riding down a ski run. Have to say I really enjoyed it and it was nice to have a break from the tough mileage we put in at Valloire last week. With the uplifts and stage cancellations, there was very little climbing so it physically alot easier than my previous race in Valloire.
Had a great week overall in Madesimo. What a great race run by Enrico and the Superenduro gang despite the torrential rain which put a slight a dampener on the race reducing it to just one stage. I was 46 seconds off first in today's stage, happy enough with that but I've got a hell of a lot of training to do to get faster. Next stop Flims, European Enduro. Looking forward to riding in the Swiss Alps : )
