"The last two weeks have absolutely proven to me that positive thinking pays off," said Danilo Hondo. The German sprinter, who is riding for Team Lamonta while waiting out the results of his complex doping case, said that he is now more relaxed a few days after Henninger Turm. "The lost chance to win irritated me. It's crazy, for over a year I fought to have the right to race again, and then I'm practically disappointed by a third place at the Henninger Turm. But that's the way it is with us sprinters, especially when we know that we're in good form."
Hondo will now train near his home in Ascona, Switzerland, to prepare for his next race appearances in the Friedensfahrt, Neuseenclassics and the Bayern Rundfahrt.
