Ondrej Cink took 5th place in the XCO race during the World Cup in Nove Mesto na Morave. Another Kross Racing Team rider, Sergio Mantecón, finished 27th.
For Ondrej, the race in Nove Mesto was one of the most important targets of 2019 season. From the beginning, he rode very brave and tried to follow two dominant riders: Mathieu van der Poel and Nino Schurter. In the final laps he paid for it and finished as 5th, but despite of this, his effort is a big success for the whole Kross Racing Team.
- I’m very happy about my performance. Before the start I said, that I’m coming to Nove Mesto for the win, and tried to do my best from the beginning of the race - said Ondrej.
Another Kross Racing Team rider, Sergio Mantecón finished 27th. At the finish line he was satisfied, but mostly – very impressed about Ondrej’s effort.
- I made a mistake at the start line and later I had to overtake many riders. However, my shape is good, but today is „Cinky’s” day. He made a big thing in his home race - Mantecon commented.
