Bettina Janas (Sportograf)

Bettina Janas (Sportograf) is fourth in the UCI MTB Marathon Series ranking. She’s practiced triathlon, running, road cycling and obviously mountain biking. Born in Germany, she has visited Spain several times and hopes to be competitive at MMR Asturias Bike Race.

You face MMR Asturias Bike Race

The season has been very tough for me, so I’m simply happy to be able to take part in the first edition of MMR Asturias Bike Race. I’ll give my best to achieve a good result, but since I’ve had several disappointments this year, I don’t want another mistake.

Your season is being

Very tough. I haven’t been able to race due to three injuries that have made me lose lots of training. I face MMR Asturias Bike Race with hope and to be able to race again.

To achieve a good result you need

I love the climbs (the steeper the better) and the technical singletracks. You have to think that in three days, everything is possible, even if there are mistakes, bad moments, crashes or other unexpected circumstances.

You hope to find…

A marvelous landscape and ‘cool’ singletracks y senderos ‘chulos’. I have realised that Spaniards know how to organise fun races, and this is more than guaranteed.

What you value from the organisation

If the race satisfies the riders, its well organised, marked and structured, it will be a success.

You started mountain biking

I began running and switched to triathlon. After several crashes and many interruptions, I stated mountain biking, and since I liked so much, I decided to focus in it.
