Last winter, Helene Clauzel had a ligament reconstruction surgery on her knee. This week-end she was back on the track and she took an outstanding 5th place in U23 race.

bigquotesThe morning, before the race, I was a little nervous to ride my first Wolrd Cup Elite race. However I managed to stay in my own quiet bubble.

During the race, I tried to anticipate my opponents’ moves to ease the situation and I managed well my finish. It was great and stimulating to begin like this because I already gained confidence. I cannot wait to be in Nove Mesto next week.

bigquotesI have had digestive problems over the last few days and it was difficult to handle Friday's XCC race. Finally, I felt much better during Saturday training and I did an interesting second race.

Anyway, I am really glad to begin my World Cup season with KMC-Ekoi-Orbea. In the last lap, I did everything I could to be on the podium. Titouan Carod was faster than me but I am satisfied with my 5th place. Now I would like to ride the Nove Mesto track which is completely different. I hope my results will be as good as this first World Cup weekend.
