Here is what Wouter Cleppe said after the race for :
This weekend, the racing action was in Serbia, in Sokobanja.
I was a little nervous for this race, because the level of the serbian racers is quite higher and i wasn't sure i was up for this.
Then i saw the track: rocks, rocks and..... yep, rocks. So i started doubting if the Vivelo M17 hardtail bike was the ideal weapon.
But once again i was impressed by the comfort this frame was offering together with great speed. The fastest Serbian this day was on a fully, but this wasn't enough to stop me! I attacked in the first downhill and i could build a nice advantage during the rest of the race.
Great bike, great race, great day!!!
See you in thassos, greece next weekend for some more marathon action!
