Transvulcania Race Report 2015

So there should have been a La Palma part 2 and part 3 before my race report but unfortunately my preparation didn’t go as planned and I was in no mood to share how my taper went, my race plan and my kit choices. I arrived in La Palma just over two weeks before race day […]
