Forward to Finland!
The 2012 World Cup is now over and the thoughts of the Irish squad have turned to the World Champs in Finland next summer. A dedicated trio are spending a week training and sampling the terrain ahead of next summer. Darren Burke and Conor and Ruairi Short made the long trip to Vuokatti.
Yesterday was a middle distance with a strong starting field (mostly Finnish), won by Thierry Gueorgiou. Darren was best of the Irish. Results here. The rest of the week will be spent training on areas relevant to WOC 2013 – see the mapshere. For those of you that missed it, you can see the final race of the World Cup in the Finnish terrain around Vuokatti here: Men andWomen.
