I feel very good. I was fast in the qualification but quarterfinal
was difficult for me. On the last climb I did not have that
much power. But semifinal and final was easier for me. I knew
that Petter was very strong in the last uphill. When I saw
him I tried to beat him. Tonight I fly to Canada.

It was important for me to get qualified. In the heats I
was little slow after the start. I managed to fight for
a good position on the last climb. I had a good feeling
today but the finish was not as good as I had hoped for.
It is good, I got a lot of bonus seconds today. I tried
to go away before the last corner but I did not find the
right flow. Nikita was strong.
looked forward to this competition for a long time. I felt
good in the prologue and also in the heats. The two guys
ahead of me were stronger than me. I think I got the best
out of the day. I did what I believed in today and I am
happy I have succeeded.
