Maribor, practice day 1June 19, 2009
I just got done with the first day of practice here in Maribor, the track is really dry, rough and fast. I felt pretty quick straight away but was getting all sorts of wild. I made a few changes to my bike during my practice runs today and feel like I have got it sorted out now. I had a really mellow timed practice run and was 10th I think but I will have a lot more for tomorrows qualifying and the race on sunday. It feels like we have already raced half of the world cups this season, I am not happy with my results so far so I am looking to turn things around for the last 4 world cups. I have won here in Maribor the last 2 years so I am confident but at the same time I feel pressure that everyone expects me to win like they did last year in Schladming. I am definatly going to be going for it, I need to make some ground up for the world cup title and we have a 4 week break after this weekend so it would be great to be on top for that period.
The rumor is that its going to be wet tomorrow and maybe sunday so it might be a wild couple of days :) anyway im looking forward to it however it goes down.
