“First race at Czech was awesome! Trails at Sušice were challenging and super fun. Well the truth 3rd and 4rd stage were a bit of pedaling but it belongs to the enduro, right? On Sunday morning we started the race with a nice weather. I started the race together with Tejchman and we passed easy each special stage. Perhaps the greatest experience I have from the last two special stages, really fun! I was quite surprised when I WON the race almost 30sec. ahead of Fikejz and Tejchman. I did not in shape for this race as I was a bit tired from european enduro races.
