UCI E-MTB World Cup Bologna
After the E-XCO World Cup opener in Monaco, the second race weekend continued in Bologna, Italy. As in Monaco, I expected another exciting fight with Frenchman Jerome Gilloux.
As expected, there was again an exciting duel between the two of us, but despite two extremely strong races on my part, it was again not enough for a win this weekend. What gives me confidence, is that in Bologna for the first time I was also able to control the race from the front and even managed to pull away slightly a few times. Nevertheless, I'm extremely satisfied that I was able to stand again twice on the podium.
