The first competitions for the European cup boarder cross took place at Puy st vincent this weekend.
There were over 180 competitions representing more than 20 nations. There were a number of competitors from the world cup teams ensuring a high quality field in both the mens and women’s events
The course had been slightly changed from the previous years making it faster with some bigger more interesting modules which was really refreshing.
The friday the competition got cancelled due to bad weather so everything rested on the Saturday and Sunday European cups.
Thomas Bankes gained a top 16 place on the Saturday before being taken out in the quarter finals and on Sunday qualified with a better time but unfortunately came out of the heats in 29th position
Charlotte managed to come 1st on the Saturday and will got a 9th place on the Sunday so it turned out to be a great weekend.
Next week I will be at the first World Cup event in Europe to be held in Veysonnaz, Switzerland.
