News > World Cup Windham

It was already the 3rd time a World Cup in Windham USA. So I knew already what I will expect there.

There is a long climb on the course in Windham which is somethimes interrupted by some flat sections in the wood. If you have been at the top of the climb, a long descend takes you to the bottom. The difficoult thing is that there are everywhere flat stones with sharp edges which are dangerous for flat tires.
Six laps long was the race. The temperatures have benn again really high which don't suit me so much. But in the days before I felt great and so I was ready to good fast.
The first lap I finished in a good position but not in the best. I tried not to go over the limit to save some energy for later. The legs never feld really good but I stayed motivated. Unfortunately I hit a stone really hard in the 3rd lap and I immediately lost air in the front wheel. Now I had to do the whole downhill till the tech zone at the bottom like this. I lost lots of time and places till I could change my front wheel. In the following laps I could move a little bit forward but on 41. place it was finish.

I was really disappointed about my mistake I did and the lost chance to do a good result.

In the standings I lost some places and I sliped back to 19th.
