Europeans Jönköping

After a quite unlucky start of my Worldcupseason with technicals I turned things around this time at the European championships in Jönköping, Sweden.
The 4.1km track above the beautiful Vetternsee was pretty demanding with steep climbs and fast decents. The start from 60th position and first lap went ok, but afterwards I had a superb rhythm and moved forward constantly. Even legs got heavier with every single of seven laps I had the Top20 just in front in the last lap. I gave it all and managed to claim 20th position and this puts a big simile onto my exhausted face.
French man Julian Abalon defended his title ahead of Fabian Giger and Ondrej Cink.
In only two weeks it’s time for the next big race with the Worldcup round two on homesoil in Albstadt.
