Just ahead of the Worlds in XCO you decided to take place in the Worlds in marathon. Is this one of your goals or it is just a part of preparation for the XCO events?
One week before the European Championships I did a marathon in Italy which turned out to be a great preparation for me. So I decided to follow the same plan ahead of the Worlds and I hope it will be a good build up. And I want to race well!
You announced that two weeks after the Worlds in Nove Mesto will come to Poland to race in Tour de Pologne. It is only a two days event. Why you decided for the TdP and does it will be your last race before the Olympic Games?
Yes, this will be my final preparations for the Olympic road race. It will be my last road race and the Tour of Pologne sounds really interesting, offers exciting stages and we will race with some Young Swiss riders in the national Team so I’m looking Forward to having a great experience in Poland!
This year the Maja Race in Jelenia Góra is in September. We are looking to see you racing there. Two years ago you raced in Poland once, this year maybe two, in next two years…? :)
Yeah, I can’t wait to race the Maja Race this year! It is an amazing event and Maja is an amazing athlete! I will be at the start and for sure for the after Party as well ;-)
