On Sunday I raced Super De in Kranjska Gora. In this race you ride a track that is downhill and xc. I did my practice run on freeride bike but for race I rode my downhill bike, because the track was more down hill than up. There were two race runs, which combined gave the start list for super finals. In first run I was 5th in Elite, in second I was 4th which combined meant 5th place in Elite (15th place overall) before super finals. In my first run I crashed and my elbow was bleeding hard. In super finals there was massive start of top 20 overall riders. I started ok, but while riding up the first hill my chain fell off and I lost all the advantage from the start. I finished 17th overall.

 

Next event was BigAirBag show in Ljubljana. They build up big jump for ski, snowboard and bike. I had a bit off bad luck, because on first practice run, I had bad landing on bag and my ankle was twisted. I went home to put some ice and just before show, I did some test runs. I didn’t want to have another crash, so I was just doing backflips. It was great show to promote our sport. I also did interview for TV.
