We did race over the field tracks during the winter, but now the rabbits and deers are crossing every time, so its a little bit nerve wracking. So, we went back to Wöllersdorf (Bad Fischau) MX track to train with realistic ground Proud to announce, that I have increased my round speed, right with the first training day!
As for now, I did know this situation only by Youtube. Enduro KEX ist my favorite there. But, naturally every Endurist can do the same 😉
And, so did I. Thats my chronicle of horror: Best to start late, and then add: no planning, where to go, rather empty fuel tank, do not turn around with reserve fuel on, and starting dawn, instead travel on, get “lost” in the neighbor country, voila, and then only add one simple thing: Don’t cross bridges, which are not ones…. 😉 The result:
For hasty ones, skip to the end, after the dive, the GoPro cheased to record
Surprisingly, the Exc did start flawlessly after the half dive. Maybe thanks to my heroic jump into the water to put it upright again. But, my curses could certainly be heart in far away Brno 😉 We managed to get home, finally. The gas tank solely dry innwards, me wet outside completely, and the smell, arghh :-/.
A long hot bath did set the things back to normal….
I did manage with each prolog run, to have one major mistake which really did cost a lot of time. But still, i managed to keep position 17th in both runs of the ladies cup among 30 starters there. It certainly wasn’t enough to get into hare scramble, not even close 😉 but that was never the target. So, I survived Erzberg!!
