Without going into a lot of detail (as I don`t really have the time to write a full blog post)
I went to Meiringen initially to support my boyfriend Andreas in his quest to complete the Platinum route of the Alpen Brevet but the racing bug got the better of me and I registered for the gold route. 170km and >5,000 mtrs of altitude gain.
Unfortunately Andreas had a really bad day in the saddle and due to spending too much time in the first refreshment station he missed the cut of for the platinum route by only 3 minutes.
I raced, I was surprised with my fitness and I had a good result! Here are some pics.
