More was not possible today2016-06-26
After a rather unspectacular race on this not very challenging championship course in and around Erfurt, I tried something at the finish, but didn’t really get away. The race could have turned out differently if the wind had been stronger. As a team we held ourselves back, and got actively involved only once, when a strong group had to be brought back. But it still worked out well for us with Maximilian Walscheid’s second place. For Max, the second place was a super comeback after our training group’s crash in Spain. He had to wait the longest of all of us to start training again, so the silver medal was a real reward for him.
I didn’t feel that great at the beginning and needed a few kilometers to ride myself in. Yesterday I trained a lot. But in the end I was very satisfied with my legs.
Now I will spend two quiet days with my family and then it is time to travel to France. The presentation is Thursday and the Tour starts on Saturday. You will hear from me again.
