Cyprus Last week i officialy started my 2015 season in Cyprus with a win at the Sunshinecup Hors categorie Stagerace. To be successful right at my first race for FOCUS XC means a lot to me and and is a real „Confidence-Booster“!

The whole 4 days of Racing went super well and i never really had any problems to keep up with the leaders. I kind of „overpaced“ myself a bit in the Prologue and had to digg deep not to blow on that 14Minute Lap but it payed off and i won the Stage with a confortable gap to my main Rivals. The following two Stages i tried to ride clever and safe as much energy as possible to have something left in the Tank for sundays XC! This worked out quite well and i felt quite fresh for the Crosscountry which was held on a nice Lap with lot’s of nice Singletrails and a couple of sharp, short climbs! I again hed great Legs, stayed with the Front, attacked with two Kms to go and managed to hold on until the Finish.
Beeing back on the big Wheels (29’’er Raven) was kind of a „eyeopener“ - actually i really love my new Raven and it’s Handling is just amazing!
The Bike is important but the People around you are even more – so i’m really Thankful to be part of such a relaxed, easy going Team which is very well organized and professional as well! Somehow this sound strange but the last two weeks reminded me why i ride Bikes – it’s not only about winning races (even if i did win a race and i like to do so;-)).

All in all it was just a great two weeks in Cyprus and i can’t wait to get back racing with the Team! Our next race will be the Kampthal-Klassik in Austria at the 29th of march followed by a big Block of Racing in April at a couple of great races (Montichiari, Nals, Haiming, Heubach).
