World cups in America

Monday, June 25th, 2007


Hi everyone,
Yesterday I did my third world cup of the season.
After some problems in Des Moines – USA and a DNF, I did a good race at Edmonton – CAN.
I did a all right swimming and I was with the first pack after T1, on the bike the course was very fast but with a 200m very steep hill, I was felling very strong and every lap o the hill I was pushing the pack, on the 5th lap I got a little break and then I thought that would be a chance to get a gap before the T2, I pushed very hard with another 2 athletes but we just got 30 seg ahead to start the 10km run.
I start the run very well, after the first km I was leading but lost few position in the second lap of the run, when I start the last lap I was 5th then I found some strength and put myself back again in third position, but in the final sprint I did not have the speed enough to fight and again finish in 5th.
I am very happy with this race…now I will be going straight to Leysin to our camp in Europe, where I will be racing the Long course World Championship in France and some others world cups.

Hi everyone!
After almost two month of good trainning in my home Brazil, i came yestarday to USA where i gonna race my second world cup of the season!
All the time i spent at home i was being coaching by Cali.
Cali was the person who introced me to the sport and also he was with me in all the stages os carrer until this moment , he is a very funny guys but on the times of the training sessions he is always very dedicate and serius!
In my opinion we did togehter a very nice job in the last weeks what i could prove that placing 2nd positon at Brazil Ironman,my best result so far at a oficial WTC race.
Now i will be switching my focus again to olympic distance, i will be racing Des Moines-USA next weekend and Edmonto-CAN on the folowing weekend, after that i go straight to our europe base in Leysin, where i will be concentrating in a another block of training in my season.
