Judith Corachán compete tomorrow, Saturday, September 3 at the Gerardme Triathlonr, just two months after his last competition, the DATEV Challenge Roth, where he achieved a historic 3rd position.
After the Roth test, the Catalan triathlete from the ANB Bodegas y Viñedos Labastida Triathlon Club team was a month practically stopped, first due to the scheduled rest after a long-distance competition and then due to an injury that also made him have to stop completely for several days.
Gerardmer is a town that is located in the west of France, about 100km from Strasbourg. Every year the Gerardmer Triathlon is held there, possibly the most important of all the middle-distance ones held on Gallic soil.
The population of Gerardmer is attached to the lake that bears the same name and the one in which the swimming takes place, which consists of 1900 m.
Next, the triathletes will face a tough cycling segment consisting of 93km, divided into 3 laps of 31km through the Ballon des Vosgues natural park.
In each lap they have to overcome a drop of around 630m, so in total there will be almost 1900m of accumulated drop in the 93km.
Finally, the test will end with the 21km run on foot, divided into 3 laps of 7km, which will run next to Lake Gerardmer.
A high level in the test
The great favorite for victory is the Chilean Barbara Riveros, who a few weeks ago won the legendary Embrunman triathlon.
Other candidates for victory and the podium are the Swiss Julie Derron, the Germans Lena Berlinger y Svenja Thoes, the Italian Elena Lombardy and the British Lucy byram.
Judith Corachán go to Gerardmer without any pressure to achieve a specific result, and only with the aim of enjoying the race, although surely once she starts, we will see her giving herself to the maximum to achieve the best possible position:
"I return to competition after just two months of finishing my last race (Challenge Roth). In addition to being practically unemployed for more than a month (between rest and injury), I have been lifting my foot lately.
The season is long and the body and mind cannot always be 100%. But he wanted to continue competing and to come do this triathlon that he had wanted to do for years.
So I face a race with the main objective of enjoying myself and adding a new adventure to my sports career.
Doing a different race, the kind I like, with unevenness, with a road bike... Let's see how we do and how we can defend it"
There are no previous results.
