First race and a certificate thatÂ what IÂ´veÂ been doing this winter is enough. 16 laps of 6,5km and with 89 girl on the startlineÂ I must admit that I was nervous, luckily Martin was there coaching me and calming me down.
With eightÂ riders from the DSBÂ Bank (Netherland) on the start I knew that they wanted to take control of the raceÂ so I stayed in the front and waited for a chance to escape with one of them… It took 2 laps til I got away with two riders, one from DSB and one from AA Drink. After that everything happend, a horse in the middle of the road resulted with a crash. I chased back and then three other riders came up from the bunch. Alone with three girls from DSB and two from AA Drink I endend up suffering alot on the last two laps when they started attacking. But a sixt place on my first race of the year is OK, and the whole day in a breakaway is good preparation for next weekend when IÂ´m racing in Italy.
Alot of thanks to Martin forÂ beeing there for me
