I had a good one at the Bundesliga kickoff in Bad Säckingen this weekend and managed to get third behind european champ Moritz Milatz and swedish champ Emil Lindgren.
Just in time for the start of the Elite-Bundesliga on sunday the spring came back to Germany with some good sunrays. I had a good start in the strong international Elite field and managed to go into the first singletrail as second. Without recognizing I was part of the leadinggroup within the first lap. While two riders drop back a bit I was trying to follow the Swedish. In lap four Milatz caught up and went straightforward into the lead. So Lingrend and I fought for second but also the Swiss Matthias Stirnemann was chasing. At the last short hill close to finish the decision for second was made. I was not able to follow the Swedish anymore but managed to safe a small gap ahead of Stirnemann. So I got third behind Milatz and Lindgren.
That was an unbelivable season kickoff for me! In two weeks Bundesliga will condinue with the „Paris-Roubaix of MTB“ in Münsingen.
