The old castel above the roofs of Montichiari in Italy was the host for the HC cathegorie race „Trofeo Delcar“ last weekend. The 5km long track leads the about 150 riders strong and well staffed field up to the castele mountain, even through the historic walls and attended with many steep climbs and dusty downhills.
This time I had a really good start into the race about demanding six laps in front of an awesome crowd. I found a good and smooth rhythem which leads me into the TopTen positions in the fourth lap. Unfortunately I flated my rearwheel in that lap which caused a long food walk. Afterwards, in the last two laps my rhythem was not that smooth anymore and I came in displeased on 40th place. But well, propably I should take the positive things out of the race with me: After an disappointing start of the season I felt pretty good today, had good legs and even the result was good till fourth lap… So I guess I can look forward to an other chance next week at the Sunshinerace in Nals.
Super cool that my teammate Florian Vogel won the race ahead of the two Italians Fonatan and Tiberi.
