Last weekend I raced at the 4x Pro Tour Gold event in Val di Sole (Italy). I have been here many times, so I knew the track very well and I felt confident to win this race.
We arrived earlier to enjoy also the area and the sports activities here. So we went wild water rafting, which I always wanted to do and never have had time. It was so much fun.
On Thursday and Friday I trained on the track and on Friday I had my qualification run. Surprisingly I wasn’t nervous at all. I knew with a solid run I can be the first, so I stayed relaxed and it turned out well. I hit the lines I wanted and even on this slippery gravel turns, my Michelin tires sticked on. I placed first with 2,7 sec advantage.
On Saturday evening we had just 3 heats, because we were not as many women as I wished. I had good gates and good runs and I won the half finals and the finals.
That win was my first 4x Pro Tour win ever and I was very happy about my result and about my performance. Second got Alia Marccelini (ITA), third Natalia Piwowarczy (POL). The next weekend I will be in Saalbach at the Bike and Beats festival and will take part at the Dual Slalom event.
Thanks to all my sponsors.
Bye Bye Helene and see you in Saalbach – AUT (Bike and Beats festival)
