One important note with regards to racing cross in Europe is that everywhere the Canadians go they start at the back of the group. This makes the starts very difficult.If we had the chance to start closer to the front our results would improve.. However one must earn this right and we don't spend enough time racing enough time racing in Europe to achieve this opportunity.

Yesterday at the Swiss Nationals, in Ruti near Zurich, Beat Wabel became the new Swiss Champion. Thomas Frischnecht was unable to keep his title and will skip the Worlds next month in Denmark. His health has apparently been a problem for the last month.
