“The start of the season has been a shake to the system, I was close in the Muscat Classic to stay with the first group but ultimately, I had to let go. I went deep and in the days after I never had a good feeling in my legs. Luckily today I felt a little bit better and I’m proud that it turned into a result immediately”, – said Ide Sсhelling about finishing second.
