Cyclocross Race Neumarkt am Wallersee - fourth place overall - second Cyclocross race of my entire life

Because of the cx race i did the day before in Offenhausen were i finished 14th overall i didn't had any high expectations except finishing without crash and pacing myself.

At the start i could stick with the first group, we were about 30 guys, but soon three guys attacked of the front. I didn't tried to chase them because i was afraid of blowing myself up early in the race.

During the third round (out of 10) i attacked together with one other racer of the front and later that round i attacked again during the steep uphill section were you needed to run with your bike shoulderd because it was so muddy and steep. The other guy tried to chase me but he hit the wall and fell back. Surprised by my own strength i was now riding alone with only the three race leaders 30 seconds infront of me. 

Altough i gave my absolout best to reach the leaders i unfortunatly didn't make it. As i rode across the finish i realised that i finished fourth overall and couldn't believe it.

Not only i was surprised but also the spectators and the other riders, mainly because i was by far the youngest and it was my second cx race ever!
