DirtyBike Race in Murr
Last Saturday I was performing the first competition in 2017.
This years Dirty Bike (cross-duathlon) was a very fast race, and even that I had a bad feeling right cossing finishers line I was 7 minutes faster than the year before.
I startet the race with running 4:30 the first kilometer and finishing the first stint (5k run) in about 25 minutes. On the second stint (15k MTB) seems I was loosing my time, as it took me 51 minutes to finish that part of the race. On the first round I was not driving agressive enough so I definitely lost time while riding down, but also uphill I could do much better. Independent from that the race court was prepared very well, even that we still had snow and ice on the track.
On the last section (4K run) the first kilometer was quite challenging, but then the rest was fine. This stint I could finish in about 21 minutes and my finisher time was 1:37:49. This resulted in being on place 28 in my age class and place 144 in total. As 222 finished the race I unfortunately was at the very end of the classement, nevertheless I had much fun. I'm pretty sure I will be better prepared for the Dirty Race 2018 to improve the overall performance.
