«Enjoying competing again! At the French Grand Prix, where the team came in second.
Decent swimming, a lot of work on the bike to keep up the break and happy with my run on tired legs.
As you know, I am not a big fan of sprint racing but I am happy because I finished 4th in the individual classification with many of the best in the world.
