Reflections on Oschersleben 8 hour where a technical problem ended championship hopes for YART
August 30th, 2016
It was really disappointing because we showed from qualifying that we had the pace to win and we did a great job until the sixth hour when we led the race.We chose to do it with two riders, Marvin and I, and we had a good pace. We knew that to win the championship we only needed to finish second to GMT94, so we just wanted to make consistent lap times and try to keep the lead. If GMT94 would have passed us, it wouldn’t have been a big problem, but unfortunately we had a technical issue which was a major bummer because we were two hours from home. It’s sad for the team and for us, because we were so close to being world champion, but sometimes that happens.
