Ben Thomas of the Mountain Trax - Vauxhall Motors team is out in Austria and ready to race in the 2013 Marathon World Champs, which takes place this weekend. The course looks amazing! Good to see plenty of tech singletrack in there.

From Ben Thomas:

Looking out the window its almost a repeat of 2012 where torrential rain fell on the mountains in France, this time though we are in Austria. Kirchberg is the host town for the the 2013 World Marathon Champs, tomorrow I'm racing for team GB for the second year in a row.

Stay tuned for the preview of the event.

The Enduro World Series is also taking place in Val d'Allos, France, so look out for our coverage of that event too.
