After last weekends victory in Brno, Karla Stepanova took part in the 11th round of the Czech Cyclocross Cup in Jabkenice. Race day saw wonderful autumn weather, but the track had been worked over the from previous nights rain. Things were very slippery and full of mud!
After a great start Karla settled in to 5th place, but a mistake unfortunately took her to ground. Back on her bike she had to lay down a blistering pace to catch the race leaders even with another fall she managed to finish the race still on the podium and clear of the main group in 3rd place.
This weekend is the final race in the Czech Cyclocross Cup, it takes place on the very hard Mlada Boleslav track. The race has been classified as a category UCI C2, which is sure to attract a few more high profile women!
