2012 Retrospect

Misiune 2012 indeplinita.
Bilantul anului: 16 concursuri (7-XCO, 9-XCM), doar un abandon, + un semimaraton cu Ghita + un Duatlon in echipa cu Sergiu Moza.
5 podiumuri, 5 clasari in top zece, restul in top 20 si doar o data in afara top 20. De la zero am facut un pas inainte de a fi un sportiv amator de mountainbike. Acest pas n-as fi putut face fara a ma consulta cu un antrenor special. Multumesc lui Marton Blazso pentru incredere si pentru sfaturi si nu in ultimul rand pentru programele speciale. Impreuna cu el am reusit sa ating obiective reale si sa ajung la un nivel mai inalt. Mersi mult coach!
Mi-am pus ca si obiectiv sa ajung la podiumul campionatului clujean de XCO, Cupa Clujul Pedaleaza si la ultima participare mi-a iesit sa ajung pe locul trei pe cel mai animat traseu al campionatului din Feleac. Mersi mult Levi & Co. pentru un campionat de exceptie si pentru traseele de cross olimpic.
Tot anul am concurat pe trasee scurte sau medii, doar la doua concursuri am ales sa particip pe traseul lung, la Maratonul Faget si Cupa Vladeasa. Am reusit sa le termin pe amandoua.
Treptat am capatat incredere in mine si sa ma bucur de rezultate din ce in ce mai bune.
Rezultatele detaliate se pot vedea aici, iar impresiile le poti citi pe blogul personal.
As vrea sa mentionez ca anul asta m-am bucurat si de un sprijin atat financiar cat si material, care m-a ajutat sa ma concentrez mai mult la concursurile in sine. O sa dedic un post intreg pentru a le multumi acestor oameni pentru sprijinul lor si increderea lor in mine.
Sezonul de pedalat s-a terminat, deja ma aflu in pregatiri pentru sezonul urmator.
Ne vedem la anul la linia de start
2012s Mission accomplished.
Balance of this year: 16 races (7-XCO, 9-XCM), just 1 abandon + a Semi-marathon with Ghita(the wheelchair guy) + a Duathlon in a team with Sergiu Moza.
5 podiums, 5 rankings in the top ten, the rest in the top 20s and only once outside the top 20.
From scratch we I made a step forward to be an amateur mountainbiker athlete. I couldn't take this step without consulting a special coach. Thank you Marton Blazso for your trust and advices and not least for special programs . Together with him we were able to achieve real objectives and reach a higher level.
I had a goal to get on the podium of the XCO championship in Cluj, the Clujul Pedaleaza Cup.On the last participation i got on the third place in the most animated track in Feleac. Thanks a lot Levi & Co.. for an exceptional Olympic cross championship. All year I competed on short and medium tracks, only two long races I chose to attend the  Faget  Marathon  and Vladeasa Cup. I managed to finish both.
I gradually gained confidence in myself and enjoyed  getting better and better results. My detailed results can be seen here and you can read my impressions on my blog posts. I would like to say that this year i had both financial and material support, which helped me focus more on competing. I'll dedicate a whole post to thank these people for their support and their trust in me.
The riding season is over, I am already in prep stage for next season.
See you next year at the startline.
