After a one-year break the Worldcup Circuit was back in Italy, Val di Sole! The Course there has some pretty steep climbs and is one of the hardest in the whole Worlcup and Temperatures around 30°c made it even harder!

After Gränichen i had to lower my own Goals and i realised that my brake due a flu after Nove Mesto did cost me more substance than i expected. I’m back in good health but not in such a good shape as before! But i was still quite confident to show a good race in Val di Sole!

After a good Start i found myself in the Top-Positions. I did’nt want to go to fast and decided to ride my own Speed and Pace myself carefully. The first couple of Laps it worked out fine and i was around 10th Position. But after about two third of the i started to get slower and lost to many Positions until the finish...

Finaly i finished in 25th - this is not quite what i expected but i actualy felt better than i did six days before in Gränichen. Beeing Sick for a Week did cost me more Substance than i expected but i’m on the way up again which makes me cofident to do well next Week at the Europeans in Bern!
