In the end of last season she announced the end of her international career. She kept on training but only had the aim to compete in the United States where she lives. But her team wanted her to join them at least for couple of events, so she decided to compete in Nové Město and Albstadt. "Where else than in my home country," sounds for Czech fans great!
And her chances? Hard to guess - she didn't compete with the top elite for quite a while, but from her starts this season in the US she never finished worse than 4th! Not to mention that it was only the last year when she won her one and only World Cup race in Mont Saint Anne, Canada. That was by the way the only Czech women's World Cup victory ever.
Well, let's see in Nové Město! What is clear by now, that she will be hugely cheered by a massive Czech crowd, so typical for Nové Město World Cup!!
