This year the championship took place in Horsens, Denmark. The conditions were sadly very flat, but I would get good opposition with both "the great Dane" Kåre Mattesen and also from the Czech rower Vatizlav Huja.
The race started extremely fast and quite quickly it was me, Huja and Mattesen who were fighting for the lead and all three seemingly wanted to be first around the sharp second turn. I pushed myself very hard at the end and was able to take the lead. Both Huja and Mattesen fought on throughout the race but I was able to hold on the remeinder of the race.
Thanks to Horsens Roklub for a great competition! =)
