The last weekend the downhill national champs were on …the reason why I gave my four cross bike a break and rode the last weeks with my big bike.
Everyone was there in Schladming THE downhill place to be in Austria. I always like to come here. The track is one of the bests in Europe and I like the whole town. And the best was it didn’t rain and my parents came to watch. They hardly never come to watch and so it was quite special for me.
The sun was shining the whole weekend and the track was so fast… Unluckily many riders rode over the edge and hurt themselves bad. So I wish all the best by the way to recover fast especially Mauser Stefan.
I felt great on the track. I like slippery dry conditions even most when you drift all the time sidewise. Friday and Saturday training went good I cleared all the jumps easy and felt good. I was satisfied and on Sunday I was ready to pin it. At the end I finished 3rd. First got Petra Bernard and second Elke Rabeder. I was very happy to be again on the podium and getting a medal.
I want to say thanks to Elias and his room mate Sebastian to let me stay in their apartment and Roland who gave me a ride to Schladming.
So now I am back home having a two-week race break and I have already swapped my bike again. I am so motivated for the 4x Pro tour race in CZE.
