In my final pre race interview for the 2013 Transvulcania La Palma I speak with Buff athlete Nuria Picas. Nuria had an incredible 2012. She raced with passion, strength and humility. Always smiling, always happy, she is a pleasure to be around. Her ability to run from VK to Ultra is quite incredible and as she showed last year, when she is racing the best in the world, she always has the ability to respond and perform at the highest level.
The 2013 ladies race on paper will come down to a battle between Nuria and Emelie Forsberg. However, with Fernanda Maciel, Emilie Lecomte and Jennifer Benna in the wings, it could be anybody’s race.
