The moment has arrived for me to defend my 2010 Challenge Copenhagen title.

Here are some comments I made during Friday’s press conference.

This is such a great race and I had an amazing experience last year. The way we got looked after and the way it was organized was great. I have never defended a title before and it will be tough but I look forward to it.

Leading off the bike was great and the run was amazing taking us through the city and huge crowds and I’m looking forward to that again. It will for sure be a tough race and I’m going into this race with a big target on my back.

So stay tuned via Twitter for all the action.
