Bundesliga is bike, not world cupbig but still big. Alexandra Engen has ridden well in U23 before and Emil Lindgren made some good places too. But this day, what a day. If it is any race I really missed that I didn’t see live it have to be this day. Swedens new day in Germany :)
If we start with the worlds number 1 ranked rider, Jenny Rissveds. She won women junior.
1. Jenny Rissveds
2. Veronika Brüchle – Stevens Schubert
3. Majlen Müller – Fujibikes Rockets
Fun to read that she won but it’s not so big if you look at her season, just good. And the big new hope for Swedish MTB. Will Sweden be fast like Norway was with both Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjå and Lene Byberg?
Then the elite. First women with a blessed win. Alexandra Engen won! Second in the picture:
1. Alexandra Engen – Ghost Factory Racing Team
2. Anja Gradl – Team Bulls
3. Annika Langvad – Fujibikes Rockets
Impressive to win with riders like Annika Langvad. But muddy race and I know that Alexandra likes it. Very happy with her win like this before Worlds. Was talking about it over dinner, before next thing.
Men elite, the other Swedish prorider Emil Lindgren also likes mud. But on paper harder to win with many strong and fast riders. But he won too!
1. Emil Lindgren – Rabobank-Giant
2. Ralph Näf – Multivan Merida Biking Team
3. Michiel van der Heijden – Rabobank-Giant
6. Manuel Fumic – Cannondale Factory Racing
3 swedish wins in a big race in Germany. Really good news and fun to hear. Hope it will continue so I am staying updated ;) Olof Jonsson came 2nd in the Men U23 too :)
In BMC Cup in Switzerland Nino Schurter and Annie Last won the elite races.
