Name: David Graf Number in Rio: 48 Country: Switzerland Result: 14 I think
How tough was the competition in your country to get a spot on the Olympic team for Rio? David Graf: It was probably the hardest one of all the countries this year. Between Renaud Blanc and myself. The fact we had to choose between World Cup ranked 4 and 5 after Papendal speaks a lot I guess.
What kind of preparation did you do with the National Olympic team before you took off to Brasil? David Graf: I stayed at home, followed my normal routine and tried to avoid the hype.
The track looked a bit different than at the test event(s). What did you like about the Olympic track and what did you think didn't work? David Graf: I liked everything but the first turn. It was probably the most fun track I've ridden in my career.
