Diane Lee competed at pro level in Xterra Lake Garda, possibly one of the toughest bike courses she has experienced. It was a testing course with over 1000m of climbing in the Italian Alps, with tricky descent and challenging climbs. Diane had a strong swim coming out with the main pack of pro men and achieving 2nd female out of the water. Diane worked hard on the bike, but struggled to hold her position dropping into 12th place, which she held on the run which was stunning, the location for this race was breath taking and a definite tick in the box of a life time experience. Some races are harder than others, some time we don’t do quite as well as we would like but finishing always still feels the best when you know you have given it your all. Diane is now focused on Xterra Belgium on the 10th June. Click here to view the race pictures.
