L’Etape du Tour 2013

sports tours internationalIMG_1204 etape logoFrom the 3rd – 8th July myself and 3 other physio’s supported Sports Tours International with their clients at the 21st ‘L’Etape du Tour’ in Annecy.  We flew out on Wednesday and spent the Thursday setting up our clinic at the expo and assisting the reps with sorting the bikes for their 750 clients arriving over the next few days.  Friday and Saturday we worked 11hrs straight providing pre-race massages, physio and Rock-Tape support for the eager yet nervous cyclists as they came to the expo to pick up their race packs.  Sunday saw 11,475 cyclists tackle this years route from Annecy to Annecy-Semnoz with 10,624 managing to finish, who then proceeded to land in exhausted and sweaty heaps on our tables for their post race massage!  Congratulations to everyone who completed this years event.

British Triathlon Championships – Liverpool 2013

What a fantastic days racing for the North East Academy athletes.  Huge congratulations to Calum Johnson who won the Elite Junior race (and also beat all the British Elite Seniors to come 3rd overall), and Jack Willis and Jordan Hull who came 1st and 2nd respectively in the Elite Youth race.  With many more extremely promising athletes coming through the ranks behind them, as well as those who sadly missed the race through illness, the North East Region is certainly leading the way.  I’m very proud to be part of the team supporting this talented athletes.  Watch this space for more to come from these guys and girls…….
