The sun was shining brightly this morning and it was going to be a good day for racing. The week's precipitation decided to take a hiatus, and the track dried out here in Albstadt. This made for some fast, wickedly quick racing. Jolanda Neff ran away with another win and Julien Absalon edged out Nino Schurter for the big finish in a down to the wire race that included a nasty spill for Nino.
