Paddy at Coppa d'Europa 2022
Sunday, 26 Jun 2022
Team Paddy Murphy achieved the best Coppa result up to now by finishing in 17th place out of 43 classified participants. The Coppa d'Europa 2022 started in Vlodrop and led through the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, the Czech Republic to Linz in Austria. As usual, it was three days of madness and it was great fun. After an incredibly good day 1, Paddy slightly lost ground and ended up in 17th place. The first 16 received a trophy. Well, Paddy will be back on the attack next year!
During the event Paddy wrote a series of tweets and here is a collection of them (some typos are fixed) - see all of them on Twitter.
We‘re ready to start, early in the morn…
Holly shit, 11th place after day 1! Must be a software error
Different "desks" than usual, but at least that hard and that much fun
Short rest for the beauties (and crews)
Approaching the Czech border
Lighter forest, better weather, still chasing after timing like mad men
Henry, El Scorpion, and Manitou made it to the finishline of the #CoppadEuropa 2022 ! Henry goes to sleep, El Scorpion and Manitou for beers. Cheers!
End results are in, Team Paddy Murphy reaches the 17th place of 43 participants. This is a personal best. However, we should collect more controls and tweet less next year.
