When I arrived in Iasi by train on Saturday evening, the weather was very cold and rainy, which made me a little nervous about the contest that was supposed to start the next day. On Sunday morning, the weather was still the same.
The rain never stopped and the tracks were all wet and slippery, but the organizers thought about the competitors safety and came up with the brilliant idea to put wire mesh on the dangerous spots for extra grip. The difficulty of the tracks wasn’t very high, but it required technical abilities.
I competed in the Elite category, with only 3 tracks that had to be passed 3 times. I started the race very well, I managed to control my nerves. I finished second place. The awards ceremony was so great, it made me feel so proud of myself.
