Mégavalanche La Réunion
Last race of the season 2011
At the Mégavlanache in Alpe d'Huez I reached the third place. For this reason I won a flight ticket to the Mégavalanche on Reunion Island. Therefore I traveled on 19 November to the French island east of Madagascar.
First I rode with friends some long distance downhills in incredible landscapes. Down from the volcano and through the roadfree valley Mafate. After this I recognized the different race tracks.

The qualifying race consisted three different routes. I needed time to find the race rhythm, but I could improve my performance from run to run.
During the race on Sunday I was able to work steadily forward. At the end I reached the third place. I am very happy to finish the season healthy and look forward to the next year.
