“Aim high and work hard for those dreams you decide where are your limits”
The Short track race resulted in a third row start at the XCO race yesterday where Mariske finished 20th, “the XCC race was brutal and there is no margin for error,” adds Mariske.
Mariske had a good start and was sitting comfortably in the top 10 for the first 2 laps.
She rode very consistently and fought hard for her 13th place after 6 laps on one of the hardest tracks on the circuit.
Mariske chose to ride her Stratos dual suspension on Sunday.
Nicola Rohrbach form was good. The Swiss rider has not had things his way for the past couple of months.
“I am just disappointed about yesterday’s race. Felt better and on the way to a good form the last 3 weeks after all the allergy and asthmatic problems from earlier this year. I was prepared for the high altitude and I think the dust was a big problem for me and my reduced lungs,” says Rohrbach.
