Update from La Santa

After a nice week on the road, is it now time for some rocky riding on the Fuji. The bike was just put together the night before departure, so this is my first time on the new kit! I already love it..This weekend there was a race going on, held by Club La Santa. Mostly Spanish people and people, Danes and people from the other Canary Islands participated. The race was two stages ( saturday and sunday ) and was in all aspects a replay of last year’s race. This year I just didn’t push myself as hard as last year, I spare the race-mode for more important races, which there will be plenty of this year.

I did have a great time racing though. Saturday I ended up racing alone the last half of the race. Sunday I decided to stick with the group I rode with ( some spanish guys), and we had a great time working together in the heavy wind! When it came down to the finishline, we each rode our race. I crossed the finishline as the first lady both days and took the overall victory.

Ain’t she a beauty ! She is equipped with the new Shimano XTR, nice! I am running tubeless, which is the top here on the island, since the ground is filled with sharp lava rocks. The handlebar is almost 70 cm wide, I’m riding totally Kabush style and have a great time doing it. I’m excited to test the bike on the World Cup courses.

    Hi Annika,

    Great stuff to follow your blog 🙂
    Curious to know the weight of your new Fuji bike and really interesting to know the reasons behind this very wide handlebar ?

    Cheers 🙂
