The first bike starts today at 7am, so I have to start at 7h15. It's pretty cold when we get on the bike, I have my rain jacket under my jacket and that is realy needed. We drive into the mountains to the village of Thermo. Not far from from that place, the special of 100km starts. The special begins with climbing a mountain through hairpin corners. I take them very slow because of the little grip. I do not make mistakes in the fairly simple navigation and I have a good flow. Later it turns out that there are many fast participants, including one on a super enduro. I help him at the end of the special to get back on track. His rear wheel went over the edge. He was pretty lucky that his bike had not disappeared in the abbys, thanking me was not his strongest point.
The special of the afternoon starts at the place where yesterday’s special ended and went through the same area. Because they're working on power lines is the start about 2 hours delayed. The start is not in order, but first come first served. I ride the special on a moderate pace because the waiting has done little good for my concentration. I also slide away twice over my front wheel, but fortunately no damage to man or machine.
I finish today at the 47th place, not very high which shows how fast the driven is. My 28 minutes penalty for driving too fast in Speed Zones does not help either. I drop to 36th place in the overall standings.
