Jaroslav Kulhavy won the Czech National XCO Championship in Prague and after four year he is going to wear national champ jersey again!
In extremely hot weather and on dusty and fast course he won by start to finish style.
“Of course, Im happy for this victory, because It’s national champs and I didnt win this race in last three years. I did today’s race from full training without any special preparation, because after UCI MTB Marathon World Championship, I’m focusing for next XCO World Cup races, so I’m glad it worked today.” said Jaro after the race. His closest competitor was Jan Škarnitzl who finished second.
“In the last part of the race, I didnt feel well and Jan was getting closer, but I had the race under control. Because there wasn’t any long climb where he could be stronger, I rode the last lap safely.” added after grueling race in temperature around 36C.
