Sorry for our lack of updates after this weekends race in Mt. Tamaro.
The reason for no results is that the finals was cancelled on sunday morning due to the bad weather over Lugano wich made it impossible to fly with helicopter so the safety of the riders couldn´t be guarranteed wich resulted in a cancelled race.
Due to the bad solution of transporting bikes on the gondola in Tamaro the riders only got 4 practice runs in on the track before the race wich is unacceptable for a European-cup.
Qualifying was however done on saturday where Robin qualified 7th fastest close to a podium position feeling good on track he was looking forward to better his result in the final.
Niklas didn´t have a very good starting position so he managed to catch two riders starting in front of him wich messed up his rythm finding him in 39th place after qualifying.
Jakob did his first international-race and was looking good in practice ofcourse having a bit of nerves coming into qualifying.
He found himself with the same problem as Niklas catching two riders in his run and had to follow the second one for about 1 minute of the track as he couldn´t pass. A lot of time lost there but he made it down and into a 12th place in juniors.
Full points & pricemoney was still awarded on sunday so Robin is sitting in 7th overall (based on qualifying results)in the standnings heading into Leogang.
It was a tired team that packed up & headed home on sunday but we are looking forward to a couple of weeks filled with preparations for the next couple of races starting at the end of May.
