I took a shot and did a late entry to the National Championships. I could still feel the pain in my legs, but this year the Mens 1x title felt really up for grabs. I hoped that I could do a great race and with some luck walk away with the title.
But it was certainly a lot of pain. I qualified to the A-final but it was painful. In the final I couldn´t put the power in each stroke and had no chance to give 100%. I finished the race in a disapointing 6th place. Very happy for my training partner Dennis Gustavsson who won the final after an impressive performance.
With the injury still present, it looks like it will be no Holland Beker race for me.
