The first race of the oversea World Cup tour was not to the liking

6/8/2015

Jaroslav has moved over the sea for the two next World Cup MTB races. He left for there after two victories and one third place as a leader of the World Series, but the very first race was not according to the wish. At a traditional location in the Canadian Mont Sainte Anne, where the World Cup was held for the 25th time and where Jaroslav won in 2001, but this time he finished in the 13th place.
“The race really didn´t came off well. I was a bit tired, the track didn´t suit me and finally the defect which knocked me out of the top ten fight,” wondered Jara shaking his head. The very next day he moved with his Specialized Racing Team to the American Windham.

A little bit worrying moment happened during the customs control at the Canadian-American border when the Olympic Champion was told by a respectable customs officer that if he had brought the World Cup leader jersey to the USA he should also take it away.
Windham and its track, is friendlier to Jaroslav. He has already won it twice and the first winning was even his first World Cup race. The next race is planned on Sunday at 14:15 local time.
