World Champion Marga Fullana (Massi) started the final stage of her preparation for the Olympic Games with a Spanish Open race in the town of Elche last weekend. Heat was a factor in the competition - something likely to also play a role in Bejing.

Fullana won her event with enough of a margin that she could take the slippery descents at a less risky pace, and she finished in just over one and a quarter hours - a relatively short race for her, but a good, intense effort nonetheless.

Next up for her is the BTT Pratxedis 2008 and then preparation at home before departing for Beijing, China, on August 11. She'll spend some time there before the Olympic race getting used to local conditions. In between photo sessions and TV interviews, Fullana will continue to focus her energy on the upcoming Olympic Games. High intensity training will be a focus.
