Yesterday the 2nd round of the UCI World Cup was held in Knokke-Heist on the beach. It was the second edition and I'm sure not the last one... The crowd was BIG and really motivating me and other riders. It made us fly over the rocks. The sections were build by our homies from the International Trialteam and by this way I would like to congratulate the volunteers as well for their help.
Fast Forward Events took care about the general setup of the event and they even managed to convince our national sports channels to come over for a documentary. After all it was a very hard race in the finals... I took off with the maximum points of 5 because I was too stressed I guess and crashed so after the first lap I was in second position after Giacomo Coustellier in front of Vincent Hermance. Fortunatly Coustellier and Hermance crashed more than once in the second lap so this with the enormous support of the crowd forced me to stay focussed... At the end I had 12 penalty points, Giacomo C. 14 and Hermance V. 26. Wesley wasn't very lucky and had to deal with technical problems (flat tire and broke a wheel) so he just missed the finals with a 10th position... Next event we are going to is the Frenc Cup in Montgeni
