Italian Championships: horrible performance

The first article after quite a long time will be about my horrible performance last weekend. The Italian championships where my main goal in the fall. Even if i felt quite tired after a hard WOC week, preparation went well and i was sure to have fast legs. I was very confident when starting my race as last man in men elite class. But the forest was not as i expected. Visibility was quite reduced in many parts and runability was not so good because of steep valleys and tough undergrowth. I missed a lot already on the first controls and could not find the right flow. After this, some good parts alternated with huge mistakes. On the last loop my speed dropped and I felt tired. Maybe the worst competition in the last years. In the finish I was more than 10 min behind the winner Marco Seppi. My teammate Michele Tavernaro was second and Mik Caraglio 3rd. Congratulations!
