Even if the head that covered most of middle Europe last weekend was little worse in Swiss Lenzerheide for Worldcup round three, the height of 1500m above sea level made it really challaging conditions.
Also the 4.1km long track was really challaging. Just one main climb but the rest of the course was allways up and down with uncountable stones, roots and corners. A real Mountainbike track, on which you would brutaly suffer if you don’t have the legs. Exactly that happened to me me and together with the extrem conditions I had simply put a super bad day. A crash in lap three reinforced my decision to quite the race.
The olympic champion Kulhavy won ahead of Schurter and Cink.
Now I’ll try to chop that race and look forward to the next chance at Bundesliga in Tittisee-Neustadt next weekend.
