Let's start with a photo impression by Eva Sammels.
For my coach it was a great day because his pupil Dame Tasama ran outstanding and at the end he was the best runner of a whole gang of skilled XC athletes. The combination of Dame his talent, his work ethic and the training program of Salavarda are a lethal combination when you want to beat him ;-) (For Almensh Belete, the wife of Dame, this is the same situation.)
I ran really poor today, it's not easy to run a good classification when the shape is not good. But it's a very honest indicator.
My other teammates Florent and Tarik also had a hard day. You do not have to worry, this guys will be ready when it counts. To conclude: I was impressed by the performance of Kim Ruell, congratulations to him and his coach Pieter Desmet.
See you soon. Greetings Lander
