UCI World Cup #1 Dalby Forest, GBR

On Sunday April 25th, 2010 the first round of the UCI World Cup series took place in Dalby Forest, Great Britain. I finished in 20th position.

The race course of Dalby Forest was a really fast but a bumpy one! While I could manage to get away with the first guys in the start, I lost position after position and finished 20th. Considering the fact that I just got back from the US after racing at Sea Otter Classic's only a few days earlier and having been busy over there the whole week through, now quiet suffering the jet-lag, I actually haven't felt so bad at all during the race itself. Also my lap times were constant and I eventually finished with only 4 minutes behind Nino. 

Next big goal: Houffalize! I am really happy to be back home for a few days and hope to see everybody there watching the races!
