2 start plus 9 laps
5th place, 24sec behind winner Florian Vogel
This race course is different to a "normal" one. Good fun though!
Technical riding in the horse stadium, asphalt flat, one short steep climb and single track back to the stadium.
As you can imagine it was pretty tactical. Only Näf and myself tried each a attack on the flat asphalt, but we were not lucky.
With only less then 2.5 laps to go, Schurter crashed hard on his 29er, in the single trail. Absalon any myself were just behind him, and the big wheels were blocking our way. Näf and Voglel were gone, since we had to wait until Schurti came down from his loopings in the air, got the dirt off and ran back to his bike again.
In the final sprint I had no chance, and I was just spectating the two from behind.
Next destination train station Basel then Zürich airport-Chicago-Albany-Windham
