It had been raining heavily for a while before qualification runs. So I, like most of the others chose to run the qualification on rain wheels. The qualification went beyond my expectations and I qualified for the quarter-finals as 14th man (48 starting 30 of which goes through to the finals ).
In the quarter-finals, I got a tough heat with Anton Hedlund, Marcus Grate, LudvigHolmberg, Lars Ericsson and Johanns Ringsby. My start was extremely bad but I found a good pace and my bodyfelt good for the first time in ages. Unfortunately, half way into the race Johannes, myself and Ludvig crashed in a wet and slippery bend. Luckily no one got severely injured.
