MAY 24-26

NMNM: Day 2

The second racing day in Nové Město na Moravě was kicked off by the Junior category race that started early in the morning, and 126 riders from 26 countries took of the course to battle the 8 laps of the race at 8 AM. They included 13 Czechs, but the victory went to Albert Philipsen. The Dane, who is a world and European champion in the mountain bike and road races, did not give anyone a chance and defended his last year’s success, having taken the lead in the very first lap and then riding solo flawlessly. The silver went to Nikolaj Hougs (also of Denmark), the bronze was taken by Anton Unger of Sweden.

Unfortunately, home colours did not live up to the expectation, as the new European junior vice-champion - Kryštof Bažant – finished 8 th , having lost 3:38 min. to the winner. David Friedel, who had taken the bronze in NMNM last years, did not have good legs and finished 51st.
