Race Recap from Gina Crawford:

This week I raced Ironman Pays D' Aix in France. We arrived on Tuesday and I rode the course on Wednesday and it was absolutely spectacular, reminded me a bit of St George in USA. The course was very challenging with 1100m of climbing which was longer climbs and long, tricky descents. I love to climb but I'm really not a great descender so this was going to be my biggest challenge. I was up against Jeanne Collonge a French athlete who I knew to be an outstanding cyclist and runner (particularly on the hilly courses), Tine Deckers who I raced last week in Rimini (an amazing cyclist particularly on these types of courses who was 2nd to my 4th place in Rimini), and Susie Hignett who was the defending champion and who had done an outstanding time on the course in 2013 as well as a few others I knew less about.
