"A nice start, still plenty of growth opportunities in all-round skating."
In August and September I participated in 2 qualification races for the Holland Cup. Due to Corona, last season a large number of riders were not able to set a time. Hence, the section long track & short track of the KNSB took this initiative.
My goal was to set good times to qualify in the kraantje lek and Gruno bokaal. I would like to ride these tournaments next, as well as the promise competition of the marathon. In addition I am also studying hard for my new study.
The races were early in the season (few hours of ice time) and after a year without races it was a bit of a test to see where I stood. I am satisfied with the times on the 500, 1500 and 3000 meters, with which I am now 6th in this classification of women. I am especially proud of the 3000 meters. In terms op laps I rode this race nice and flat. I would like to do this again as a goal for the next race, but with faster lap times.
