In the men’s race

Nicola Rohrbach form was good. The Swiss Silverback rider has not had things go his way for the past couple of months.

“I am just disappointed about yesterday’s race. I am feeling better. After, the last 3 weeks after I have suffered from all the allergy. Plus asthmatic problems from earlier this year. I prepared for the high altitude and I think the dust was a big problem for me and my reduced lungs,” says Rohrbach.
