Chateau de Chantilly Duathlon Race Report

It was my first time travelling to France to race. When we arrived at the venue the chateau was very open surrounded by many lakes and canals. I started early afternoon, which was very warm. My first run was 1 km around the gardens of the chateau, going into transition there was a very steep sandy hill before we got our bikes and went out onto the bike course. The bike was a very tough course with deep sand, fast slippery corners and tight hairpins. My cycle was 6 km following a hare, which I had to overtake. The second run was 1.5 km around the gardens, the finish line was up a steep gravel hill where they interviewed me.

I would highly recommend doing this race.
