Phuu, what a day. Started off good with me and Fabian controlling it up front for most of the time. About halfway up the long climb I hit a small rock and I hear Fabian say, platten… My rear wheel was spraying latex all over the place as I lost pressure. I thought I try to continue and hope that it sealed it self. We were then 6 riders in the front.
Was riding about 1bar in the tire all way to the top, where I entered first to the techzone. Changed wheel and lost about 10sec. Closed the gap and in the end it was just me, fabian and world champion kulhavy up front. We worked together and Fabian made a great effort setting me up to attack in the end.
Managed to win with about 1sec down to kulhavy and Fabian.
Really happy about the win. The winter has been good!
Tomorrow last stage. Xc, which going to be a hard one!
Thanks for all the cheering and a big Thanks to my team. We are working hard for this!
