for another weekend things didnt go my way.finally i felt strong all race long but unfortunately snapped my chain right off the startline and conceded 3min to fix it.i got going quite nicely and faught past as many riders as i could to finish 23 rd after rolling through the start finish 121st on the start lap.

the course in val de sol fortunately had alot of climbing and with some good shape and a superlight specialized stumpy 29er i managed to pass guys frequently througout the race.jaroslav proved too strong for the field once again onboard his epic and powered to his 5th race win of the season.

this week we head to champery in switzerland to do 2 weeks of prep for the world championships on the 4th of september.
