“Seeing the epic race in South Africa from the bank last year left me very motivated. But when I saw the race, I also realized that I wouldn't have had any chance there.
After my Achilles improved a lot since the end of last year, I regained a lot of confidence in my career. I don't know if I can complete against the likes of @ alistair.brownlee and @jgomeznoya, but the hard cycle of the bike definitely suits me. "

7x @ironmantri 70.3 Worlds. I will be back racing in Nice this year. Watching the epic race in South Africa from the sidelines last year left me very motivated. But watching the race I also realized that I would have had no chance there. After my achilles got so much better since the end of last year, I gained back a lot of confidence in my running. I don't know If I will be able to complete against the likes of @ alistair.brownlee and @jgomeznoya but the hard bikecourse should definitely suit me.
