France in May

Training has been going very well with consistent training. James Elvery has joined Laurent and myself in Sète to help with preparations and to make a 'small' training group.
I raced in the French Grand Prix sprint triathlon in Dunkerque over the weekend, a fun race to start the European season. It was freezing as always in the North of France. I raced in the front group during the swim and bike. The run is always tough in Dunkerque; the footpaths and turns are not smooth and it's always windy. I had such a dry feeling in my mouth, probably from swallowing a lot of dirty water in the swim because the washing machine is an effect when the turning buoy is 150m from the start. I finished in 3rd behind Emma Jackson (Parthenay, AUS) and Barbara Riveros (Tri Val de Gray CHI). Poissy stood on the podium in 2nd for the team's classification.
