The small town of Windham in the US- State New York was hosting the sixth round of the UCI MTB Worldcup last weekend.
With a long climb and a fast and nice descent the 5.1 km track was a bit ‚Old Sdhool‘ but fun. I had an all right start into the race in the sunday afternoon heat and quickly found my rhythm. With Seven laps to go I didn’t want to try something special so early in the race so I focused on my on pace, hoping to speedup in the end maybe. In the beginning of the last lap I was in the reach of the Top20 but causing a wheelchange destroyed my hopes to maybe at least try to attack this spots. Bit pity but so or so I’m quite happy with the 25th rank in the end.
Worldchampion Schurter won the race again ahead of Absalon and Lukas Flückinger.
So now the Worldcupfinal in Meribel in two weeks time is next.
