In the Women's Championship, both experienced Czech and Havloková from the Czech Republic after the first round of five rounds of moves in the top ten but only seconds behind the end.

From the sixth straight, Nash, who finished at the start of this year's SP series in third Waterloo US, suddenly dropped from the top ten. Finally, he closed it at the finish when Havlíková finished driving the third eighth place.
"Before the race, I would be happy with the tenth, I was a little disappointed at the moment, I was well managed and struggled for the box, I was a little sorry, I repeated, but I lost contact with my forehead. that this is like this, "Havlíková said.
"It's a good race, I didn't advance in the first round, the second came when it was decisive when I was driving in the front group, and there we were stuck there and I couldn't go up there, someone, so I did, but that it's impossible to run, "Nash said.
Brand victory with a five second advantage ahead of Annemarie Worst, another Italian, Alice Maria Arzuffi. Jana Czeczinkarova finished in 16th place.

Jupiter: I took fourth place in a balanced race
A seventeen-year-old cyclist, Jakub Ťoupalík, used his knowledge of the trajectory on the Tábor, where the World Cup returned after five years and reached fourth place in the junior race. After a very successful appearance, he could only regret the fall in the second half of the race, which made him too much in power. And you miss him in the last fight on the podium.
"I am happy, I really have to take fourth place in the World Cup in terms of how the whole race has been balanced, it's been eight hours for a while, it's a shame for the fall, it's a lot of strength, technique, but I take fourth place." Jupalik said to the reporter.
Adam's 22-year-old brother, who has reached the world bronze medal between juniors (2013) and silver on the twenty-first (2016), was seen throughout the race. Immediately after the start, he advanced and enjoyed excellence. He was caught, but still in the game. The conclusion is Belgium's best Witse Meeussen.
The jump ended just below the podium after Tom Lindner held him behind. At that time, the consequences of the fall may be seen. "I took two rounds in front of the goal in one part of the reel, and little Nijs (Thibau) jumped there, then it was a terrible stretch and there was not much strength," Jupiter said.
Too much energy to return to the head after the fall. "It's hard to say if autumn is really a decisive moment when I'm not three years old, I come here on the road, I'm almost the strongest of the group, I always get it, but it makes me so strong that I just don't have to what to do, "Pius regretted.
Is something different from his point of view in the end? "I want to get my head out of the front, it's definitely better here, but Germany doesn't let me go and it's not where to overtake it, I'm sure I'm strong today, I think it will be a box but what can be done," he added.
Many fans have helped in their struggle on the frozen track when they returned to the race. "They are really great and I thank them," Jupiter said.
