Just one week after the World Championships in Norway the last points of this years Bundesliga were distributed in the beautiful town of Bad Salzdetfurth in the north of Germany. The 3.5km course with start and finish in the middle of the nice old town, the awesome spectators and at least the nice autumn weather created an superb atmosphere again.
I had quite a bad start into the Elite race that was sheduled with eight laps. I just couldn`t follow the really high speed in the front and so I reached the top of lap one in 22. place. But after this lap evereything seemed to improve: I found my rhythem and a good speed and overtook rider by rider. Midway through the race I was in reach of the podium and with a good last lap I managed to get third behind winner Moritz Milatz and Fabian Giger.
Surely I didn’t expect a podium in this strong field but so I’m even more happy and satisfied about the race.
Next week I will do the last race of my season in Jelenia Gora (C1) in Poland.
