In order to prepare EOC MTBO we (me, Piero and Giaime) decided to go to Switzerland for two national competition in Benken.

In the forest we found a typical swiss terrain with a lot of very fast big road.

Saturday sviss cup middle

It was a quite flat course and it was important to ride fast. Soon after the start I understood that my navigations was not so fast, During the race I didn't have big mistakes but found a lot of hesitation and some bad route choices. Ended 2nd 1:40 behind Giaime.

Evening in Stein am Rehin

Sunday Swiss Long Championship

It was a  tough race with a lot of climb. About orienteering, my race was not perfect (lost 2 times 45 second  missing dotted paths and a1:30min because of bad route choice). Anyway physically I felt good so I could earn a lot of time on the long uphills and in the final part of the course. So I got the victory 5.02 in front of Giaime. 3rd spot went to Piero.
