Second win in second race

2017-02-01
Second win in second race, and my seventh overall here in Dubai. I am super happy with this win today, even if it didn’t come about as perfectly as yesterday. Sometimes you just have to make it exciting ;-)

We lost each other in the hectic finale but didn’t give up. Fabio and Mateo brought me back into striking distance, and set up the sprint again, even if it wasn’t the usual lead out. Then from behind I just sort of jumped from rear wheel to rear wheel, let them pull me up and then in the last meters came out of the slipstream to bring it home.

Even if it didn’t all go smoothly, the result gives us confidence that we can also win when things don’t go as planned. But then again, we are here in Dubai exactly to play out such scenarios, even if we didn’t want to ;-) We learned something worthwhile and hope that we can pull it off next time. Maybe we will have the chance again tomorrow. If all goes as it should, there should be another sprint. The team and I will try again to defend my blue jersey. So until tomorrow. Greetings from the desert.
