Even though it wasn’t in the original plan, I have raced in Lenzerheide, here is the report.
After the youth festival and several drink receptions at the end of the school year, I could start my World Cup Lenzerheide adventure. But why “adventure” you ask?
Since I originally didn’t want to race any more World Cups, the race in Lenzerheide want originally part of my plan. Erich had already planned and excursion with colleagues to Saalbach the same weekend a long which ago. So, I had no support or driver to help with the caravan journey to Lenzerheide. The bigger problem was Erich was taking the car and our VW bus didn’t have a tow bar for the caravan. After a lot of deliberation on what to do, I decided to drive with the caravan. Fortunately, I could borrow my parent’s car, so a big THANK YOU to them.
I started in Küttigen on Thursday, in a strange car and for the first time by myself driving the caravan. At first I was a little unsure, but as the kilometres ticked by, it became easier. I finally reached the camp site at St. Casein in Lantsch and they helped put the caravan in place and I could finally settle down.
I went along to the track but was stopped a couple of times as I didn’t have a start number. I hadn’t had the opportunity to get my number because I was there early. The track had changed a little but I was riding the “A” Lines and was feeling fine, so in good spirit for the race. (mehr …)
