Worldcupkickoff Nove Mesto

With Worldcup ölende in Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic also the 2015 UCI MTB Worldcup season kicks off.
About 20.000 crazy enthusiastic fans made their way to join the action at the 4.5km long track at the Biathlon stadium. A lot of roots, rocks and some steep climbs made this track a really demanding one.
With about 150 riders in the startline I Was really optimistic and excited to get things Startes. I took an allright start but got involved in an Crash in the startloop and lost many places. I tried to catch up but did’t found the speed and mode for it so my race ended up quite in the back of the pack.
The olympic champion Kulhavy won in front of his homecrowd ahead of Schurter and Absalon.
The next round of the UCI MTB Worldcup will take place in Albstadt in front of a homecrowd in just one week time. Even time is quite tough I’m just really looking forward to that one.
