I arrived to Tabor around 10am. It took me some time to take care of everthing, regarding the book but around 1pm I hit the course to see what has changed compared to the last time.
Niels Albert, without the rainbow jersey. The big question is: how long will this hiatus last? Just a couple days or a year?
Eva Lechner, the Italian ‘cross champion.
Szilard Buruczki, the Hungarian champion.
Niels Albert tackling a technical corner. There’s a drop-off before this corner and it was quite tricky already, I can imagine how it’s going to be like on Sunday.
Annie Last from the British squad.
I really don’t know what Jonathan Page will be capable of on Sunday. Sometimes he’s just struggling and sometimes he rides brilliantly. I don’t think that he could win the World Champion title, but if he had a very good day, a podium doesn’t seem impossible. Just nearly impossible.
