In our second interview we talk to the league's 3 times Sprint Champion. Tracy Parkinson. Tracy has a GSP called 'Ralph' (affectionately known as 'Ralph the Running Dog'). Tracy is a seasoned runner, and at the moment she is fighting back from injury to get back to knockout tournament fitness. She took time out from her schedule to talk to us... 

Q1. Hi Tracy, you managed last year to successfully defend your Sprint title in the league against some tough competition. Before we get to the key questions all World Cup competitors want to ask, a few other questions...

So the first thing is what do you like about canicross ?

A1.... the best thing about canicross is running with Ralph, he has the biggest heart. Ralph "was" a rescue and he has taken to what ever I've asked of him.. I couldn't have asked for more. Except he has changed my running journey I was a fell /ultra runner and that wasn't his thing 😁

Q2. So the next question is easy, what are the things you don't like about canicross ?

A2.... what is there not to like apart from summer when I have to get up early to beat the heat

Q3. What are  your canicross ambitions for the future ?

A3... my focus at the moment is to come back from injury and aiming at the Trophee Sud Bourgogne in France..which is at the end of October 8 races in 8 days. See you there !👍

Q4. OK.... to the inside information. What are tips that you would give World Cup competitors with things to avoid during the tournament ?

A4 Just any negativity it's your own mind that will beat you, give it your best shot

Q5. Do you think there are things you would advise World Cup competitors to do, or to take note of, or do during the tournament?

A5... stretching and warming up has to be up there

Q6. So, What do you think the secret is to winning a knockout ?

A6... plan your route and time of day are biggies for me... Also get a run in at the beginning of the week as if it doesn't go to plan you have the chance to have another go at it

Q7. How would you describe the experience of competing in a tough knockout competition ?

A7... it's always tough, and can be a huge mental battle as well as physical. It can get really competitive in the group but use that to dig deep. Oh and if you don't feel sick afterwards you've not give it your all 😁

Q8. Are there other questions we should have asked that you would have liked us to ask ? If so what are they and what would be the answer(s)?

A8... yes .....mines a large class of Soave.... actually I'm on no alcohol for 2023.... let's see how long that lasts ! 👍
