The final round of the Superprestige series was up on the coast and I wanted to finish off the series with a decent ride. The course was a funny one, very tight and pretty technical for the majority then some real long hot dog style sections where you could see all you competitors ahead or behind you. I felt pretty good in warm up and although it was a deep freeze again the course didn’t seem to be so bumpy or tough on your back which I was pleased about.
I took full advantage of my 2nd row start and was well positioned going into the first bend. However as everyone turned in the inside line just got blocked and I had to come to a hault and watch as everyone rode around the outside of me. Going into the technical uphill sections near the back led to more bad luck and by the time we came out I was actually last. I thought to myself things can’t get any worse so put my head down and tried to make my way through. By mid race I had worked my way up to 19th but then began to fade and battled in for 22nd position. I was obviously dissapointed as felt in such conditions on that course I was obviously going well to come through so strong. I didn’t have time to dwell though as it was onto Heerlen for the next days race.
