Because the training of the past few weeks went well and above all painless, the Schattdorferin decided in the short term to make a start at the National League-race in Uster. "However, I did not see myself as a favorite because I came back from a three-week training camp in the French Pyrenees the day before", said the Uri, who will soon celebrate her 26th birthday.
Each discipline is done twice
The double sprint race was as hoped for by Jolanda Annen and she was able to dictate the race from the start, despite the strong competition.

Alissa König, Julie Derron, Lisa Berger, Sara Baumann and Jolanda Annen took the first job together.

I wanted to know where I am right now, "said the final winner at the finish, which has paid off.
