I was nominated for both disciplines downhill and 4x but i thought doing one and doing this well is better then stress around with both and do both bad. hmm I am still not sure if it was the right desicion because I ended up 11th in 4x which was absolutly not that what I had expected. Medal was my goal and after my qualify in Val di Sole 4th place I thought it could happen, why not. I was well prepared and felt good. But yes thats 4x and it didn’t work out for me this time. I didn’t feel good on the track and I switched around my bikes 4x fully or hardtail 1 time – that was my question.. I got a new 4x fully frame from commencal (thanks for that commencal andorra). In the finals i decided to got with the hardtail- i had a good gate but let the first corner open and I got 3rd and the track didn’t have many options to pass, so I stayed 3rd and was out.
I was disappointed but how i said thats racing and next time I make it.
In the same night from friday to saturday my team mate Hannes and I drove (okay he drove i slept most of the time, thanks Hannes ) to ther Eurobike and we arrived there just in time. Running around to see all my sponsors, get the deals, get new deals and the most important thing get a new frame sponsor, because I left the team Alpine Commencal.
