-”Nice to be in new city/part of China. Today it was a typical PWT Sprint area with a mix of park, abandoned resort and partly runnable forest. After a long travel, arriving the night before the race, I didn't felt great. The course offered fast pace the whole way, but still I hesitated in few places and lost most time not running straight and aggressive enough in the forest parts. But happy to start my long stay in China with a 3rd place anyway. The start/finish area was impressive with a huge stage along Rizhao beach front."
commented Yannick Michiels, who is running already his 8th PWT China tour.
