They changed a lot on the course since last year which made me really happy. Had a couple of rocky/rooty sections but much better in all ways. Started after M15-16, Women Senior, Men junior with 5 others. Nice people so smiles on the startline. Almost missed the start but starting last I didn’t loose any time. Geared a couple of gears fast and then I dropped my chain.
Put the chain on and I was last. Chased and dropped the chain in total 3 times more. Gearing to fast on bumpy terrain with a chainring without wide/narrow teeths and without steerer wasn’t so good. Chased a lot on the first lap and caught some people but went a bit to hard so after 1st lap I wasn’t so good anymore and had to slow down.
Chased in a pace I could hold and got some backpain, understandable when racing hard without training 😉 Was pretty funny at least and except the chain my bike worked perfect. The Awesome sticker on the top tube really tells the truth 😀
Ended 3rd which resulted in podium and some flowers 😉

And then it was men elite, 59 riders so a lot of people on track at the same time. Record on CX in Norway I think. Fun to see the sport grow.
