Gran Premio Mama è Pappa Guerciotti at Milan (UCI cat2) January 27th 2013

 

Sorry for the late post of this report, but I was so disgusted by my bad performance that at first, I didn’t want to write anything at all.  The nasty Milan-weather (cold and foggy) made the course that I already don’t really like (countless bumps and two tricky passages I don’t really cope well with) even more slippery and tricky and my only thought was : « I’m glad when it’s over ! 

 


With such an attitude it’s impossible to do a good race...Add to that horribly bad start and a wrong choice of tubes ( I had opted for intermediate instead of real mud tubes, but the terrain had become much deeper as races passed), you get the point...

 

 


The whole race was just a desperate struggle to finish and I apologize especially to my husband who made the whole travel, prepared my bikes and, to top it all of, had to endure my bad humor !

 

 

Hopefully my next races will be better, I would like to finish my cross season on a positive note, not with the feeling of failure.

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to thank my italian friends for their support : Mille grazie a Carlo e tutto il suo team di Ciclismo in Rosa per la lora gentillezza e anche per le caramelle che mi serviranno al rifornimento delle gare su strada. Così avrò una pensiera per loro ad ogni gara ! Vorrei ancora auguriare tutto il meglio a Marina Romoli chi era presente a la gara, forza Marina, sei un esempio di corraggio per noi tutti ! Finalmente vorrei ringraziare anche la famiglia Guerciotii per il loro sopporto e spero fare ancora qualche belle resultati con le bici Guerciotti !

 Hope to give you soon some good news from the next crosses in Belgium and in the Netherlands.
