Matej off to a great start

Dear friends,

As a part of pre-season training I took an oportunity to compete on still growing race series – Moravskoslovenský DH Cup. First round was held in small ski resort not too far from Czech border – slovakian Kalnica.

Thanks to really nice weather there was really stack field. The track was short, not too technical and therefore the battle of the hundreths of a second started.
The only man who could beat me in the final was Filip Polc (-0.2sec). I took 2nd place, what I was really happy for. I took this race like a training before the season and it helped me to get the confidence and motivation, that was the main goal.
