Europa Cup

Just a quick report from today's race...
It was no surprise to wake up this morning and see misty rain.. its been raining all week! What would have been a truly fantastic course, full of switch backs, and single track climbs, became much more of a mud slush.. but still a lot of fun. Christoph and I managed to get a small gap straight away, and only Cedric Ravenal (Orbea) followed close behind. We rode 2 laps together, taking turns on the lead. After a while Susi got a gap, but then soon after took a big fall. He was okay and continued to end up 3rd. I then had the lead for a while, but Cedric caught me soon after. With just one lap remaining I was riding up one of the sticky mud climbs, when my derailleur jumped into my rear wheel, ending my race there and then. Finally Cedric held on for the win.
Tomorrow morning I fly to US, and will race a NORBA on Friday.
