I’m just back in Belgium from the US. I’ve been in two different climbing areas, Squamish (Canada) and Rifle (Colorado). In January 2010 I bought my flight to the US and Canada and I decided to go on a climbing trip of two months on my own. This was the best decision I made in a long time.

We arrived well in Oslo! But there was still a long way to go. We had to wait 1,5h to get a rented car. At the airport we met Daila Ojeda and we drove 6 hours till we reached the meeting point which was only 290km away. Finally we arrived at 2 am and met the rest of the German team, Jule Wurm, Jan Hojer, Christian Popien and Jeremias Groß and got a very nice fishsoop.

After her great season, Tahnée finished with a fantastic result at the final round of the IXS European Cup in Chatel. Overall there were 25 women racers spread across 3 categories. Tahnée was the youngest racer there but this being one of the nearby tracks to home she wanted to do well and even try to take the overall win - there was however another local girl - Florian Pugin, fresh from her 4th place at the World Championships in Canada.
