On Friday I went to Kirchberg in Tirol to start at the extreme distance over 58 kilometers and 2700hm. Exact at 8:00, the starting signal went off and the participants of the four different distances went on the 7 km long flat road and then further to the first long climb on the Choralpe.
I was able to place at a good position and took the leadership of the women on the first increase of the extreme distance. On the Choralpe prevailed great atmosphere thanks to the many spectators who cheered loudly at us bikers.
Now only the last, very steep increase over the Hahnenkamm was ahead us. But I didn’t let the rear wheel of my foreman out of sight and mastered even this with a steady pace.
After I had completed the last few meters, it went for Fleckalmtrail the second time. This time I went more confident into the trail and immediately found a good line which certainly brought me to the finish.
After 4 hours and 2 minutes, I finished the race very happy and pleased as first lady.
