Budapest again

Sorry I am coming back so late with the race report, but I was so busy. I got back from Budapest where it was the Buda Marthon, as far as I remember the 8th edition.

As I am still tired and still not trained as well as I want it, I've went for the short distance, as it was better preparing for the 2nd UCI race in Romania: Lornion Trofe - UCI C3.

I am happy that I start to feel my legs better and stronger. I had a good start and I felt pretty well on the climbing parts.

On the descends I didn't push very hard because last time here I had a flat tire and now with the Joe's No Flats Sealant I was more secure, but I've preferred to keep myself for this week end.
I've finished 7th, at general at the short distance, my team mate Oli 8th and Eli 10th on the long distance. Congrats to them !

As it was the 1st of May, after the race me and the rest of the boys had a non-alcoholic beer.

I'm glad that we were a lot of Romanians at this race, from my team Maros Racing, from Targu Mures and Dinamo from Bucharest.

Was also the first race with my brand new wheels: Novatec rear hub, Project 321 Lefty hub, Sapim CX Ray spokes, ZTR Olympic rims and Joe's No Flats Tubeless Kit. HERE are some photos and real weight (w/o the qr).

I hope that I'll feel even better for this week end race and I hope that the rain will stop as the Mures course has such a 'lovely, chocolate' mud.

I would like to say a thank you to Maros Sport for making this trip possible but also to the other sponsors and partners: Cannondale, Ashima, Continental, Cratoni, Syntace, Joe's No Flats, Xpedo, Adidas Eyewear, Sapim, Thule, Grip Grab, Novatec, VDO, Zakudo, KMC and Buff.

Here you have a movie made by Eli, my team mate:
