Great race. I had weak legs at the start but they warmed up quickly and my pulse was just great. The weather was really hot but I had David & Sebastian to pour ice water over my head (thanks, guys!). I’d managed to crash before the race in an attempt to test-ride the track but even that didn’t keep me from pushing my limits on the technical sections this time. I race to learn - and learn I did. Somehow I managed to do a spectacular somersault in round six, landing on my back with my bike on top of me. Miraculously, nothing much happened besides my nice jersey getting quite dirty. The spectators told me they’d never seen anything like that crash before. Great show. :) During the last rounds, I battled a bit with one particular racer but decided to take things easy and enjoy the whole affair. The pictures can tell the rest of the story:
