For our last day in Spain, we went riding in Òrrius Bikepark in the morning and in this video we explain what happened the day before and during our training.
The english riders and myself met a couple of german riders today in La Poma Bikepark, in Premià de Dalt. We had great fun riding the spot and later in the evening, the Òrrius Bikepark.
Today, I met with the english riders Andrew Chai, Steve Rogers and Antonio Claret for a rainy training in the woods. I did the trip from Switzerland to Spain by car but I didn’t expect such a bad weather. We went riding in a natural spot in Premià de Dalt, close to Barcelona.
Last week-end, I took part in the 2nd round of the World Cup in Vöcklabruck, in Austria.
The first challenge of this World Cup: the quarter finals on Saturday, at midday. I start the race well in shape with a first lap at 8 penalties. Already at this stage of the competition, the results are tight between riders and everything could be possible. I am confident on the bike. I realize a better second lap with only 4 points, which makes a total of 12 penalties altogether. I took the second place of these 1/4 finals, qualified for the semi-finals the following day.
On Sunday, still on a very positive mindset, I start the competition on harder obstacles and very long sections. I make several max-penalties and suceed to make a section with 3 penalties. I struggle with a lack of rythm and commitment on these aerial sections. I ended 23rd of the World Cup. Even if I could hope for better, my goal this week-end was to have fun again on the bike and enjoying the sections, with the right mindset. Which I did, and I’m happy with it.
Next event will be the “London Trials Battle”. A new concept of trials in the middle of London City.
