The week following Albstadt was another big race in Granichen, Switzerland as part of the BMC Racing Cup. It was a stacked field but with HC Elite points up for grabs I set my goal as a top 15 finish in the Elite Men. The mercury soared north of 30 degrees which made racing just that little bit more uncomfortable. I had a solid start entering the single-track inside the top 15. I managed to find a good group to ride with making up positions 9 through to 12 and sat with them for the majority of the race. On the last 2 laps I faded a bit but managed to hang on for 12th position in Elite and 2nd U23 picking up some valuable points. Now I’m looking forward to 3 weeks good solid training before the next World Cup in Lenzerheide, Switzerland on the 5th of July. I’d love to be back on the podium by then!
