Lermoos, Austria to Imst, Austria. 35kms, 2023m ascent, 2237m descent. For some reason I have sat down at the computer a couple of times now over the past few days to write …

Where do I Start

I honestly don’t even know where to start when it comes to sharing my experience at the Transalpine Race. It’s hard to believe it ended a week ago. The longest week of my life, yet some how it went by in the blink of an eye. Through traveling after the race, I feel I haven’t really given myself a chance …
