The Fourth Place at the World Cup in Lanzerheide

A week after the unforgettable World Championship in Vysocina there was the MTB World Cup race in the Swiss Lanzerheide. Jaroslav has had nice memories of the last year when he managed to win here. This time he was in the head of the race from the beginning and he set the pace. But he had a puncture of the back wheel in the third lap and despite the quick change at the pits he lost the contact with the front of the race.
“I had a puncture at the asphalt climb and the wheel was going flat. I couldn´t ride on the roots and I rode to the pits. Fortunately it was changed quickly, in 20 seconds, so I tried to get the others in the front. I reached the third place, ahead of Absalon but then he woke up and I couldn´t ride more. The fourth place is good anyway, but if not for the puncture it could have been better,” said Jaroslav after the race and he moved up to the fourth place in the current ranking.
