Yup, at least 3 of our 6 are from pro teams (CCC, Salcano - Arnavutköy and Bolmet). Don't know about other 2 guys. I'm amateur w/out club however :]

I was in the same race, good to see photos on this forum :)

Btw. it is really great race around the biggest mountains here, called Tatras. Start is in Stary Smokovec (Slovakia) and the route goes to Poland and back to Stary Smokovec - 199 km.
This is photo from the start, 250 people there.

Are you carrying the pee needed for the dope control? I thought that needed to be sealed? :roll:

Hy fellow riders :)

Club race from last saturday, 5 round à 7 km, first one we rolled in, strong headwind in one direction, still managed a 40km/h average, was flat tough.. :mrgreen:
So the first pic is just at the finish line, the guy on the front is speeding up to announce the race after the first round. Shortly after that I attacked (hehhe)
And went for a couple of km alone when I got caught by the group you see on the second pic, which was the group of the day (I am at the end - suffering :lol: )
Third pic showes the podium, the guy in the middle (swiss mtb elite rider) won, he attacked with 2km to go, but we just couldnt follow - also because of the headwind - yeah it was definately the wind.. :wink: )
I won the sprint for second (i am on the left) - hey let me tell you the lightweights are the best for sprinting :twisted:

:beerchug:

In a real flat out sprint with nearly 2000w lightweights would burn and explode.

Pro-kermesse race at Buggenhout-Opstal (Belgium). Won by Dries Hollanders, before Tosh Van De Sande and Niko Eeckhout, but by then I already left the shower... ;-)

@Tinea pedis, you mean if I reached the finish in a breakway? Unfortunately not. I had technical in Zakopane (frayed rear der. cable) and with 15km to go I had to stop for 2 minutes due to cramps. Even though I don't think I would survive with the pros to the end. In Zakopane when Zielinski from ccc jumped I was too tired to stay on his wheel and the last 65km we rode in 3.
