Today I raced my first World Championship Series event of 2011 in Hamburg, Germany. I crossed the finish line in 12th place. Overall I’m very happy with the result. It’s always tough racing back to back weekends and with a transatlantic flight thrown in there, it can be especially difficult. Fortunately, I recovered rather quickly from Edmonton and seemed to adapt to the European time zone pretty well in the days leading up. Nevertheless, it’s hard to compete against guys who either live here or base themselves here for the summer.
That being said, tomorrow I’m off to France with coach Jon to meet up with Simon and the crew for a short training camp before we head over to London for the WCS race in a few weeks. It will be nice to get in a bit more training and staying over in Europe will certainly help for London.
