Cahors Urban International Trial
We travelled from Martigues to Cahors, which is about 100km north of Toulouse in France where Rick Koekoek and myself were invited to an international competition with the top riders in the world. The sections were huge and the the evnt is run for both mountain bikes and motorbikes. Our competition was run on the Saturday evening under big spot lights. The format of the event was the French “open free” style. This makes the competition much more spectator friendly and easier for the public to work out. It was two laps of 5 sections, first lap riding each section in one direction, and the second lap riding them in reverse! I had a great time riding (although still very tired from the week of training!) and with great crowds it made it the bext event of the year so far. Can’t wait for the next competition! Big shout to Vincent Hermance for helping with the competition and the invite!
