Worldcup Chongqing and Baku

So lets talk about the Boulder Worldcup in Chongqing. For me it was the first time in China and i think it was a good experience. The flight was quiet long 14h but it was okay. Chongqing is really impressive. The streets are really crowded and the drivers are really crazy. So first day in Chongqing was normal, the air is really bad but the hotel is good. The competition wall is perfect and the volumes are nice. So for me the competition started bad, I was too nervous and felt two times under the top on the first problem. On the second problem it was better and after some tries I maneged to cimb it. Third problem was really my style and I flashed it. The other two were hard and so I finished with two of fife in 24th position.

So lets talk about Baku. The city of Baku is amazing and the buildings are crazy. The competition wall was not so great but okay. So we started the qualitication round and the problems where super hard. I did only one problem and I was qualified for semifinals. The semifinal was again super hard and I did one problem finishing on 9th place.

So for me it was an amazing experience to take part to this two Wordlcups and I'm really happy that I can do such comps.

First Italian Cup in Rome

The first Italian Cup was really good. The organisation was perfect and everithig went well. I have never seen an Italian Cup with soo many people in Qualification. I was already qualified for the Semifinal. Semifinal was good and I managed to climb 3 of 4 problems. So i entered into finals as second behind Gabriele Moroni. After semis it started to rain but luckily the most spectators staied there to watch finals. In finals we started with a hard slab, my foot slipped at the last moves.

Second problem was amazing, a really huge jump and than a loong move to a small hold. I did the jump, but was not able to grab the next hold.

Third problem was easy for me and I flashed it. Fourth was good some endurance and than a big jump to the top. I was able to flash also this problem and finished on the second place. The hard training over the last months is starting to give me some satisfactions. Now some relax and than off to China!!!!

Review of the last months!!

Lest start with the Boulder Worldcup in Munich. The routesetting was good but I was not in a good shape and a little bit unlucky, so I finished 21th. Afther Munich we went to Eidhoven, but also there my shape was not good. So the day afther qualifications we went to the gym to train. Training was good but my body was empty I needed some rest. The problem was that 4 days after I was in Arco for the Rock Master. I did the open and finished 6th, first out of finals. Than the weekend after Rock Master I was in Stuttgart for the Adidas rockstars. There I felt better and qualification went well and I topped all problems. In semifinals the temperature was too hot and I did nothing. Afther Stuttgart I did a 2 weeks brake and I recovered a little bit.
This weekend I was in Modena for the Italian Championship. It was a good comp the routesetting was not the best but also not so bad. In qualifications I did two tops and entered in finals as second. In finals I did 3 tops in 7 and also Michael did 3 in 7 but he was first in qualification and so he won. This weekend I have my last competition for this year and then some rest.

Here some pics of the last comps:
