The race of 400m took place at 5 pm, where Michael competed. With 1:11.783, he was second behind Andreas Rodler. The Results of the girls U15 were fascinating to us. The winner had a time of under a minute, eight young Japaneses stayed under 1:05. Respect!
This morning at seven o’clock, all the competitors of Downhill gathered at Mount Suam. After a short opportunity to survey the track, The Advanced-race started at 9 am. In the end, the track was judged by the riders to be too short and not worthy for a UNICON.
There were more than 50 degrees Celsius over the Tartan, when Henriette competed at Long Lump at 1.30 pm. These were tiring conditions, in which hardly any top performance could be made. The result are 2.25m, more just wasn’t possible.
The sun shined down from a clear sky today. The thermometer showed about 40 degrees. After the Korean breakfast with meat, fish and Kimchi, but luckily also with toast and marmalade, an hour of workshop was scheduled.
What a climate! Taking the first step out of the air-conditioned airport – wow, our breath is caught in our throats. That hot and a that high humidity at once – in our climes you can only find such weather in the tropic house of a zoo.
Right now, we are at an altitude of 11,211m between Irkutsk and Ulanbator. Outside, there are freezing -55 degrees. With about 1,000 km/h we move fast south-east in the direction of the Korean Peninsula.
