Something went wrong with the weather, because the race in Willingen was all dry, it was like a complete new experience. Even without racing or exercising that much I ended up in the mid-field on the short distance
The next weekend the weather was allright in Wetter for the Ruhrbike festival, just the dark clouds seemed to threaten us. I was registered for the middle distance with 55km and 2000m of altitude.
If you like to ride single trails, you should participate here. Sadly I had a bad day…
Quite early in the race, I received some marks and spots and my right knee hurt really much.
Later my stomach started to bother me a lot and I decided to quit after the short round.I believed that it was the best descision. Later that day, I went to bed at 18:30o´clock without dinner.
Like you say: shit happens.
Lots of greetings
