Prologue Cyclo-Cross national de Riom (FRA), 05.11.12

Bad luck...


Since there is no race for juniors or female riders in Riom, my boyfriends brother Florian and I teamed up to do the prologue (a relay-race set before the main elite race). Florian did the start, the third, fifth and seventh lap alone and I the second, forth and sixth. The last lap is a kind of cross gentlemen since both riders of a team race together and time is stopped when the second crosses the finish-line. Florian did a great job during the first lap, getting us into the first few teams, I tried my best to keep that position (lost some time, but not that much), but fortune wasn't kind to Florian, in the following laps he had 2 punchers in a row and lost a lot of time (which I obviously couldn't catch back). It was nice racing with him, having someone with me during the last lap made it easier. We finished second in the mixed category
