6dot1In preparation for WOC in August I am currently taking part in the “Tyrol 6 Days”, a multiday competition in my home region Tyrol.
Perfect organization, good maps, challenging courses and wonderful weather so far during the first 3 stages.
The start was very good for me. After a 3rd place in a funny and challenging sprint prologue with a labyrinth part and a 2nd place on first stage I won Stage number 2 with just 3 seconds.

Also due to the bonus time I got from the prologue I started just a little more than 1 min after the leader Michal Smola. I had a good race and when Michal missed to control nr 8 I could catch him. We had a parallel race until the butterfly where we had a different sequence. I run a good butterfly but did a small mistake to control 20. So when I came back to the central point for the last time I did not know if I was 1st or 2nd at that point. Towards the end of the following long leg I could see him again in front of me (he was some seconds behind after the butterfly but did a better route choice. In the end of the course I was a little faster and came into the finish with 30 seconds lead.

After two days of rest tomorrow the second half of the Tyrol 6 Days will start, this time in northern part of Tyrol. Looking forward to it.

Maps and my routes can be found in my digital map archive (my Garmin is broken, so no GPS routes, sorry).

Results and some pictures can be found on the organizers homepage www.tyrol2010.com
