I work as a merchandiser for all cycle clothing on Wiggle/CRC and live in sunny (and windy) Southsea. Instagram - @juliadavis101
I ran my first ultra race this year, a North Face 50k in Bear Mountain National Park in NY state which was amazing. I honestly didn't know what to expect - the terrain wasn't easy and it was a pretty hot day but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how well I could manage. I even placed 2nd which was a huge surprise as I had zero trail ultra experience.
The long term plan over the past 18 months has been getting a place for the OCC as well as my sights set on SDW 50, Classic quarter as well as a few other surprises along the way. I'm pretty excited about some of the new Maverick routes and with the Dark series just around the corner I'm getting pretty excited about those too.
Inov-8 X-Talons in all their weights are my absolute favourite - you feel fast but super grippy....what better way to feel excited about wetter weather or difficult terrain! I also love to rock a Ciele cap - my absolute savior especially in hot weather & got me through this summer perfectly and lastly, Stance socks are always a winner.
