After a „break and reset“ I felt „ready to race“ again yesterday at the BeNeLux-Cup in Landgraaf in the south of the Netherlands. The 5,7km long track leads the riders via fast singletrails and a few steep hills up to the Snowworld twice per lap, so there was quite some challanging climbing.
I had a good start in the C2 race and at the highest point of the first loop I forced the pace a bit. A bit surprising but from there on I was alone in the lead but was able to stay focused and kept the fun the hole six lap race and managed to win my first race this year ahead of Thijs Zuurbier and Bas Peters gewinnen.
I’m super happy that I could also implement my personals goals in that race. It was also nice to see so many riders with a flower on ther numberplate in memory of our teammate Annefleur, who passed away in last years worldcupfinal in Meribel.
