UCI World Cup 2011, round 1 – Champvent, Switzerland
After the European championships in Biella, Rick, Janine and myself travelled to Lazzate in Italy to train with Paolo Patrizi and the Spanish trials Team. Unfortunately I was unable to train due to my ankle injury and was only able to spectate, something I am not great at! We then travelled to Thun in Switzerland for a few days rest before the next competition in Champvent, to compete in the World Cup. The sections looked great and the crowds were enormous! The weather couldn’t have been better which really helped. Unfortunately, with my ankle I was unable to ride to my usual ability and plaed 16th. But I still really enjoyed the event. Also Rick placed 8th and Janine just missed the podium to finish in 4th.
