If you race, you know. You always want to do better. For the second XCO race within a week, Anne crossed the line in the final XCO race in second, 21 seconds behind Pauline Ferrand-Prevot. A solid achievement, but Anne felt she could have done better that day. Although she closed in on Ferrand-Prevot, she did not manage to close the gap. Sina rode to 8th place, Barbara Benko struggled and had to abandon the race as she did not feel well.
One week of racing in these times has honestly never felt that good. This year has been challenging for everyone of us and we find ourselves in a privileged position to race, in good health. Strong performances and good times being together as a team again. Our race bubble has two more big races to go. Motivation is high. Every single one of us will strive to do the best, for ourselves, the team and our sponsors. See you in Leogang.
