Jaroslav won the Czech Cup but did not defend the national title


Jaroslav lost the Czech Champion jersey. He did not reach the next home title on the track in Kutna Hora and had to surrender to Ondrej Cink. The second place was safely enough for the overall triumph in the Strabag Czech MTB XCO Cup

“Actually, due to all those circumstances today´s silver is pretty good…,” thought Jara after the race.

“Overall, today´s race did not fit me. I have been recently training a lot but not especially for the Championship. I lead the World Cup and want to do my best in the next two overseas races. I didn´t like the track, it did not fit me. It was physically demanding and not funny. And moreover I have made a lot of mistakes today, smaller falls at the beginning and I left the others. Ondra was riding very well today and deservedly won. At least I picked up some points and won in the overall Cup rating which I am happy about,” Jaroslav summed up after the race.
