Krawattencross Lille, Saturday, February 9th

Excellent start and shitty finish...

 

 

On Saturday in Lille, I took an excellent start and passed the pits for the first time in 11th position and was 13th after the first lap. But as the race went on, I couldn’t put any strength on my right leg since I’ve got problems with my back due to a pinched sciatic nerve and my appointment at my osteopath (who was on holiday this week) is only scheduled for Monday.

In fast flat passages, where I normally can take advantage of my power, I couldn’t use any of it as it put me into too much pain. So I lost more and more places (whereas normally I gain them) and finished 21st of 36 riders at the arrival. Not bad, seen the bad shape of my back, but nevertheless disappointing seeing that I didn’t get any UCI-points to add to my already existent ones.
