Yesterdays World Cup in Bern was the hardest race for me so far this year. 
The 4 laps and in total 138km and 1680 hm made that I lost the World Cup leading and the jersey that I just started to like so much… 
Last time over the long climb Kirstin Armstrong attacked in the bottom. Both me and Marianne followed, first easily and the closer we got to the top the more my legs were screaming… 50m from the top Kirstin attacked again… and my screaming legs turned into blocked logs 🙁 To watch them ride away was nothing I want to see again but atleast I gave everything. I just had to accept that they were 50 meters stronger this day.
From behind a group of 8 riders came and the uncontrolled chasing started, with the gap growing to the two escapers as a result. The only thing I could do was to stay concentrated for the sprint. Every point counts and a 5th place for me gave me a 2nd place in the overall World Cup, only five points behind Marianne.
So the fight continues… Next time will be in Montreal, Canada on the 31 of May.

But first Tour de l´Aude. 10 days of racing in France, starting from Friday…
