3rd place at the GF Città di Garda, Italy

Great day for my team Torpado Surfingshop and myself at the lake Garda!

It was again a great racing day here in Italy for me! I was sitting in the leading group thoughout the entire race, when, towards the end of the race, the later winner Michele Casagrande attacked in a climb and got off. Cuervo, Paez and I were still together on the last km; we sprinted for the remaining podium positions and I eventually "lost" the sprint to Cuervo. He was strong, but I also have committed a real beginner's mistake: the day before the race I didn't have a look at the last km and so today I took the wrong line in a sand passage in the last km, while they knew exactly where they had to go to stay on solid ground. I spent too many grains there to stay with them which I then lacked in the sprint... ;-) 

My teammates were even better than me: Serena Calvetti won the women's race, while our other lady Daniela Veronesi finished in third and last but not least, Mr. Yader arrived in 6th!
