Pontevedra Success for Erica

Saturday 18th May 2019

A typically modest account from multisport superstar Erica Martin of her excellent performance at the World Duathlon Championships is below:

"The race started on an athletics track just outside the town centre. It headed into the old town, around twisting narrow streets and then back along the river and into a second lap. Transition was in the centre of the track. 

The bike course headed out of town and up a gradual climb to the halfway point. The good thing about this meant that it was all downhill on the way back! 

The second run followed the same route as the first but just for one lap this time. Finishing in the Stadium was a great way to end the race. 

I was really pleased and surprised with the result having had an injury leading up to the race."

A superb result, after a troubled build-up, and can't wait to see what's next!
