Next race after IM Staffs 70.3, was the European Olympic Distance Champs in Geneva. It gave me just over 2 weeks to build some extra speed work into the plan having been predominantly been training for half ironman. The European Champs have fond memories for me as it’s where I started my international career, first of all as a youth (14-16 age group) and then as a junior (17-20) for GB.
Geneva, Switzerland. Famous for its watches, exceptional organisation and beautiful lake. The ideal place for a Triathlon then. And so it was that Chris Standidge, myself and our long-suffering support team headed out for the European Triathlon Championships 2015.
