37th place in Bern

In Bern Gosse started in his first World Cup of the season. He started from far back in the peloton and tried to work his way up.

Sunday the cyclocross peloton gathered in Gosse second home country Switzerland for the third World Cup of the season. For Gosse it was his first appearance in the World Cup this season. He had to start from the back of the big peloton. On the fast track in Bern it was difficult to move up, but Gosse managed to gain some places and finish in 37th place.

“I drove a good and steady race today. I started from the last row and couldn`t move  up in the first round. During the race my lap times were comparable to the ones of the riders around position 20. So that is a good sign. I finished 37th, not too bad after starting from the back and considering the fact I lost a few spots in the final lap after a small mistake. I really enjoyed my home race! It was unbelievable how many people cheered for me and were screaming my name all time”, Gosse said  after his race.
