So I started my preparation to the summer world cups. Few days ago me and my boyfriend, we arrived in Vale di Daone, 1700 amsl somewhere in the Italian Alps. Weather is not so nice, raining most of the time, so it’s hard to find two hours to do training.

 
 

The route in Daone is one of the most difficult speed routes in the world, it’s 26 meters long. Starting platform is 10 meters from the ground, so first we have to climb on it. Than hard moves on a really long speed distance, together about 40 meters of climbing. Not hard? So try to climb on itin 12,33 seconds – best man time, or 21,13 seconds – best woman. My goal for this year is to go below 20 seconds. Will I make it? Hope so :), that’s for I came here. Hope weather will be better. In 2008, and 2009 speed record was mine!

Free time we spend in Torbole and Riva del Garda small cities on the coast of Garda lake. I also train on the IFSC speed world record wall. So this camp will be really hard! First summer competition is in Munich, Germany on 1-st of July.

Few photos You can find in my gallery.
