After his win at the under23 World championships, the plan was to cautiously get Ondrej Cink closer to the top in what was his first season at the elite level. But things turned out completely different, and the young rider from the Czech Republic became the shooting star of the season. Cink had a strong start to the season: Teaming up with Thomas Litscher at the Andalucia Bike Race, he made it to the overall podium in 3rd before winning his first elite catory-race at the Kamptal Klassik. As soon as the Worldcup season started, Ondrej Cink exceeded even the most optimistic expectations: After a 12th place at the first race, Cink scored an excellent 6th place in Nove Mesto and confirmed that performance with a 10th place in Val di Sole. But the real highlight was to come in Andorra, one week after he had won the Czech national championships. For more than half of the race Cink was riding on his own in the lead in Vallnord before Nino Schurter finally caught up with him and dropped him on the last lap. Cink still finished as a strong 2nd and added two more top10 results at the World championships and at the Worldcup finals. At the end of the season, these results put him in 5th both in the UCI’s World ranking and in the Worldcup’s overall standings. No wonder Ondrej Cink’s main objective for 2014 is to repeat these awesome results.
