Back to the roots

21 May

Back to the roots – the XCO race in Baia Sprie organized by the Garage Racing crew is one of my favorite races in Romania. Great area, great course, great people.

I’ve raced there 2 years ago and I loved it.

I had the chance on Friday to check the great course with Tomi and Kiks. A very technical demanding course, unforgivable if you make mistakes but in the end was very fun.

We had the start Saturday at 10:00. The fast start created me a few breathing problems, but nothing significant. Then in the second lap I’ve lost a a few seconds due to some technical issues, once again nothing really important. In the third lap I started to feel better. So I’ve finished 2nd at my category and 7th overall.

I’m happy to be back on the podium, but I am planning to be faster. Now I know what should I improve and I will work harder to get it.

Many thanks to my girlfriend Simona, for the photos and the whole support before, during and after the race, and to my family for the whole support.

Also I would like to thank my sponsors for making this possible. Their help is very important and without them everything would be much more difficult to realize.

After the race I’ve decided with Simona to stay at Baia Mare until Sunday and visit a few museums as the “Museums Night” program was on. We’ve seen some cool stuff and learned a few more things about our planet.

My next two races will be the World Cups in Nove Mesto (CZE) and Albstadt (GER) so if you will be there, please cheer up or stay tuned on RedBull.tv, maybe you’ll see me !

All the best,

Vlad
