Nommay World Cup and Fidea Jaarmaarktcross Niel Races
After a crappy time in Nommay where my legs just didnt work, i went back to basics in my mind and focused only on positive race experiences i've had in the past. I kept these thoughts up for the next three days until the next race at Jaarmaarktcross in Belgium.
I guess there is a lot of truth to the power of positive thinking. From the first pedalstroke, i was feeling great! Unfortunately i was so taken by surprise by my responsive legs that i got nervous and didnt fight as hard as i could have for top position going into the dirt where we rode single file for quite some time. Oops. I eventually passed a few riders to finish in 14th just behind my teammate Veerle Ingels. The result may not have been spectatular but it did give me a good feeling that if my legs can be great from the start in this race, then why not in the next! I'll only have to wait a couple of days more since this Sunday is Superprestige Asper-Gavere in Belgium. Here I go...
