It was a tough and muddy race for female elite mountain biker Camilla Knudsen in yesterdays XCO UCI C2 competition in Hammel, Denmark.
It had rained heavily for several days including the night before the race which made the trail quite slippery and hard to keep a constant pace.
However, despite illness, cold winds and mud Camilla stayed within top-10 (number 6 among the Danish riders).
Very well done, Camilla! (follow Camilla on Instagram: @camilla_k_knudsen)
I am so ready to take on the mountain bike trails again – now 10 weeks later. Despite my ribs are still sore another minor problem is the Danish fall/winter. It is wet, windy, cold, muddy, nasty….really all the things you typically dislike about mountain biking…but we are kind of used to that in the Nordic countries even though I prefer the more warm and dry conditions.
Well, you really gotta do what you gotta do…so bring on the winter and let’s go biking 🙂
