French cup 1 & 2
By Damien Godet #69 on March 27, 2011
I was in Carpentras (south of France) last week-end for the begining of the french cup. On saturday, the organisation cancelled the race because of the wind. It was a reasonable decision because it was very dangerous ! So we raced twice on sunday, from 7am to 7pm ! Unfortunately, I crashed during the 1/8 finals of the 1st race. It was a big crash at the end of the 1st straight. my head hit the floor and my elbow was hurt. I needed a few stitches.
I couldn't ride the 2nd race of the day. It was not the best way to begin the season, but I am still confident for the next race. Last week I was in Switzerland once again with the franch team. Next week we will start the Euro series and then the world cup in South Africa !
