German Championships Speed

Speed nationals were just a week after the last Nationals in the Olympic Combined.

After about three weeks, just ahead of Nationals, I really felt like I had a good base of endurance. But it quickly showed that I wasn't able to climb as smooth as I wanted. I didn't really find the right rhythm and also did ...
