180527 32520 by Sigel CZE NoveMesto XCO WE ForchiniRForchini trumphs - Litscher with bad luck

At the third world cup race of the season, ramona forchini managed a small coup in nove mesto na morave, czech republic. The athlete from the jb BRUNEX Felt Factory Team took rank 16 and met the world championship criterion for the first time. thomas litscher was on the top 15 when a material problem threw him back into 28th place.
At ramona forchini, the knot exploded in nove mesto. "finally, I've got it."
Forchini had a good start and was quickly in the top 20. There, she was able to assert herself very well. First she rode smartly in a group with world number one yana belomoina, who slowly moved forward.
In the second last lap, forchini made a minor mistake that brought her down. Not bad, but bad enough to lose touch with the group.
"Pity, otherwise one or two more places would have been possible," said Forchini. However, the 2015 U23 World Champion was nevertheless happy with her race, which finished 16, her best career result in elite world cup.
"I think that's what i can do right now. Now I am glad that I have made the world championship criterion once.", she said with a big grin.

Lisi osl had a bad start. „i wasn’t fresh in the beginning, but it felt better every lap“, till she hit a tree. „i got caught on a tree with my handlbar and just fell into the next one“ that’s why i couldn’t go allin till the end, the pain in the back was too strong. Nevertheless she could finish the race.

Thomas Litscher was riding in the top 10 till a mechanical problem forced him to stop in the techzone, 2 laps to go. It took some time to fix it and litscher got back into the race on 31st place. In the end he could catch just a litte back and ended up on a 28th place, 2:56 min down to the winner nino schurter. „the stop in the techzone took me out of the race rhytm“ but anyway the feeling was good and a top 15 position would have been possible.

Max foidl had a black day „directly in the startloop i had this cosy feeling, i felt different and coulden’t go to the limit“ but he kept fighting till the end but there was just a 92th place for him at this day
Short Track: Litscher got pushed into the fences
On fridays shorttrack, the luck wasen’t on litschers side. 3 laps to go he got pushed into the fences and got stucked with his handelbar. From there on the race was over, at least away from a good position. He finished the race and ended on a 29th place. „“the feeling was good, already much better then one week before in albstadt, but i have to work on the high efforts“
Like in albstadt the womans shor track ended with a win from the danish champion annika langvad. Ramona forchini finished 28th and lisi osl 34th. it’s not the favorite disciplin of the both jb brunex felt ladies, but they get into it better and better each time.
Results of the U23 Races
The team had two retirements in the U23 races. lara krähenmann was brought down on the starting straight and could not continue the race. Except for a few bruises, nothing serious was diagnosed in the hospital. “Luckily”, said krähenmann, “I just want to move forward. Maybe I should have been more patient.”

Casey south crashed on his head in the men’s U23 race on lap two and had to give up. However, he also later received the all-clear.

Fabio püntener recorded a clear increase compared to the race in Albstadt. He got off to a good start. “I went at my own pace. It was definitely better than last week.” Püntener was happy about his 40th place, 5’ 11’’ behind the victorious Romanian Vlad Dascalu (1h23’44’’I. He was less happy about the cramps that tied him down during the third lap. So he lost seven more places.
