UCI World Cup 2011, round 2 – Val D’Isere, France
This weekend I have been competing in the 2nd round of the trials world cup. It was held in ValD’Isere, france, usually known as a ski resort in the winter, in the summer it becomes a mountain bike mecca. At the same event there was also the downhill, cross-country and 4cross french cups. Despite my fractured ankle I managed to place 10th. I feel this was a great result considering the injury. But it was a great event with great sections. I am now looking forward to the competition this weekend in Le Puy-en-Valey. Rick had a great ride to 7th place and Janine again just missed out on the podium to finish 4th. Now i will train with Hannes Herman from Germany and Kenny Beleay for the week in La Plagne, in the French Alps.
