I was travelling to the race in Czech Republic with confidence that I can make a good result. The course suits me and the form should be ok, too.

The only uncertain thing was again the weather. It was chilly and the sunshine shortly turned into a rain shower. But luckily we could do the race in dry condition. Like always the course is really attraktiv because it's everything into the forest with a lot of roots and rocks.

My start was not perfect. Altough it's longtime wide it's really difficult to find a gap to improve the position. Of course the power is another point. My power was ok but I didn't have an extra power. So I found myself around position 30 and could keep cool. In the next rounds I could pass some riders but also I get passed. Slowly I could manage to improve my position. In the second last lap I was thinking: Now I go flat out in my "last" lap. Deal done. I was already happy to see the finish line when I realised that the riders in front of me going into another lap. F...! But it was also another chance to catch some riders. Unfortunaltely I cound't manage that and I crossed the finish line as 21.

I'm happy with this result for the moment. Finally I got a good feeling during the race on my bike. This gives me selfconfidence for the next races.
