Axel Zingle: “Yesterday night I could only think of today’s race”

I’m just so happy with this victory. Yesterday we did a recon of the final circuit and at night, when I was on my bed, just before sleeping, I could only think of today’s race. Every time I get this kind of feeling with a race, I am close to winning.
It was hard to position myself ahead of the final sprint. I knew that, if I was on the top10 on the last corner, I could fight for the victory - but the run-in to the final hill was a long, 3-kilometer descent on which being at the front meant spending too much energy. The key was being the last to sprint for a good position before the last turn. I managed to do this, I won the race… and I’m very happy.
