The excitement is really hotting up. On Saturday 11th August the mountain bike section of the Olympic Games in London gets underway.
Among the starters is double world champion Irina Kalentieva from the Topeak-Ergon Racing team, who will be lining up for her native Russia on her Canyon mountain bike.
“You can’t afford to be afraid of the course and have to be prepared to really let yourself go and give it everything you’ve got.”
This guiding principle is what has fired Irina Kalentieva to the top of her sport and she has remained one of the fastest women in the world in the Cross-Country-World Cup for several years now.
Irina always gives absolutely everything in the pursuit of her aims. Mountain biking is her number one passion and this is something she is aiming to prove at the Olympic Games in London.
In Irina’s Blog she talks extensively about her preparations and experiences. Accompany Irina in the final hours before her big event.
So get stuck in there Irina and go for gold!
