It was a really hard hard course with a lot of uphills and downhills. We think that cross country is a great platform to start the season so We really enjoyed the conditions here but the course was very tough when comparing to Tilburg.
We will now enjoy having the medaling and getting the title back from 2017.
We are feeling very happy with this medal. For some of us it is the first time competing in the mixed realy for our country, so we are very pleased - we knew we could get a good result here, we have a very strong team. The course was a little hard to race, but we are strong team.
We wanted to try and repeat the same result as last year when we finished second, but the teams are very strong but we tried out best anyway. The course is tough, with lots of changes and inclinations, and for this distance, at times, it was really fast. There was great atmosphere out here, lots of spectators, which really makes a difference to the athletes.
