1 hour and 28 minutes is all it took Maxime to complete the 1 km swim, 20 km mountain bike cycle and 7 km trail run. This outstanding performance earned him a first place, and the title of European Champion in the 25-29 age group. “I’m very pleased with this first place as I hadn’t expected to win. I was in good shape on the day, and managed to get ahead during the cycling race, and to maintain my position all the way to the end,” says Maxime, who already has some great achievements under his belt. His next objective is South Africa! We’ll all be rooting for him during his participation in the iconic Cape Epic race in March 2019.
