“I wanted to win, so I’m sorry for second place. However, coach Mauro and brother Boris came to me that in mid-January I was already sure of a small globe, which is not commonplace. So feelings mix in me. I just tried to concentrate on my rides, especially the other one was not ideal. It was a fight, but I managed it, “said Petra Vlhová after the race for RTVS and continued:

“In the second round I felt good, I tried to do my best, but there were mistakes. But when you take a risk, those mistakes can come. ”
