Earlier this year we announced our support and sponsorship of Abby Scales, a local athlete representing Great Britain in the Age Group Sprint Duathlon Team. Abby recently booked her bike in for a service, provided an update with her training and we also provided some Enervit Nutritional products to help keep her going as she prepares for the European Championships in a couple of months time.
Here is what Abby had to say:
European Duathlon Championships 2021 – Abby Scales
It has been a long wait to get to this point, with race after race being postponed. However there is light at the end of the tunnel and I will hopefully be travelling to the European Championships in July.
Training for the event started last month and it’s such a great feeling to have a big race to train for (we all need to set goals and work our way towards them at the right time). I’ve really missed racing, but the prospect of a race is really motivating me to train hard. Following the support given to me By Peak Ascent my GB kit has been dropped off to have the Peak Ascent Logo’s printed onto it and it’s now all starting to feel very real.
For the European’s I will be heading back to Romania. The event was held there in 2019, the run course is quick and flat, the bike course is also quick but technical. I loved everything about this race and it was my best performance to date.
I really cannot thank the team at Peak Ascent Cycles enough for keeping me and my bike on the road this year, and into the build up to the Europeans. From repairing my numerous mechanicals, answering my questions to fuelling me be during those tough sessions and long rides.
We follow Abby’s progress with great interest and we would be thrilled to see her succeed in Romania later this summer. You can follow her on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/abby_scales_duathlon/.
From all at Peak Ascent Cycles, we wish you all the best of luck Abby!
