It’s a weird season and nothing shows better than the fact that today’s race in Zolder wasn’t a World Cup but a Superprestige race. I didn’t change much in the grand scheme of things, the lack of spectators meant that it didn’t feel much different from other races this season, but it was still weird that it was ‘just’ a Superprestige race. This race was one of the few that have been on the calendar as a World Cup or a World Championships race since I started shooting cross.
Those of you, who watch this race carefully know that there is a hill with a little chapel on top of it. The area around is closed normally even to us, only in 2016, at the Worlds were we allowed in. Luckily, today, we were allowed in, or at least there were no signs to keep out and nobody was there to make sure that we didn’t enter. I hope I did justice to the hill. Tomorrow is another day and another race – this time the third round of the World Cup in Dendermonde. From what I’m hearing, it will be a mighty muddy race – really looking forward to that! Thanks for reading, I hope you are having a lovely Christmas!
