XCup #2 - Mud, roots... more roots... did I mention roots?

Bike: BMC Teamelite 01 XX1, Rocket Ron LiteSkin 2.25, 1.4 bar. Medium MTT damping

The second XCup took place outside of Höör. We were here racing last year and it was muddy and rooty. This year was about as muddy but a lot more rooty.
The starting hill went really well. I flew up it and went into the single track in second place behind Stefan Larsson. However after that I gradually lost places. I didn't like the terrain all that much. I ended up in 11th place... not very good.

In hindsight I should've taken the Fourstroke instead. The full-suspension would've really worked in this terrain. I did however want to give it a little rest and relaxation. It's going to have to work hard soon enough.
