After crashing in the first two events of the 2013 World Triathlon Series I took some time to recover and then got in a nice 3 week training block at my new home in Ontario. Feeling fit and ready to resume racing I flew over to Europe last week to compete with my French club in the first Grand Prix race of the year in Dunkerque. These GP events offer a great opportunity to mix it up in a very fast and competitive field. The depth at these races is very similar to ITU racing so it was a good chance for me to get in a proper race ahead of the Madrid WTS this weekend. It felt good to finally put on my race flats and have a go at it. Overall the race went well. I was a bit hesitant on the bike with the crashes still fresh in my mind but overall was happy with the race. I ran well and crossed the line in 8th place. Our team finished 3rd overall which was a nice bonus!
