Fox competing at 2012 Pau World Cup
18 year old London silver medallist Jessica Fox will line up in her first competitive International race since the Australian Open when she contests the Pyrenees Cup Series this weekend.
The ICF ranked event will consist of three races, with the first race commencing on Saturday in La Seu, Spain.
The Pyrenees Cup Series promises to be an exciting affair, with a strong field assembled. Headlining will be the Frenchwoman who pipped Fox for Olympic Gold, Emilie Fer, two-time Slovenian K1 World Champion Peter Kauzer and French C2 pair Pierre Labarelle and Nicolas Peschier.
Fox has spent the past week preparing in the Czech Republic and Germany, and is hoping that the Pyrenees Cup Series will provide her with the perfect launching pad to a successful World Cup season.
“So far it's been a great trip with really good training in Prague and Augsburg.”
“I'm looking forward to racing the Pyrenees cups and getting more experience on the Seu and Pau courses which are venues for big races like World Cups, as well as revisiting Foix!”
Fox will contest the both women’s classes, C1 and K1, where she will face stiff competition from Fer, Kiwi Luuka Jones and Slovenia’s Eva Tercej.
Race 2 will be held in Foix, France from 30 April to 2 May, with the final race to take place down the natural rapids in Pau, France, from 4-5 May.
