Milan Vader: "the best day of my life… again!”
"After my Netherlands championships victory, my third place at the European championships, it is just like I am living the best day of my life again, week after week. It is hard to realize what I did and I cannot find the proper words to describe this successful period. A year after I left the Under 23 category, it is incredible to finish 6thin a World Cup Elite race!"
"I really feel well in my team, they always go all-out during competitions. That is why I have had such great results lately. Now let’s go to Lenzerheide (Switzerland)! I know the tracks will be different but it will not cause a problem to me. My season is already a success!".
Thomas Litscher finished 8th, Victor Koretzky 16th, Annie Last 27 th and Malene Degn 52th.
Thomas Litscher did a remarkable race in Val di Sole crossing the finish line in 8th place. It is his first top 10 of the season: “Thanks to my good start and my constant speed I reached my top 10 goal” Litscher commented.
Our Elite Men have two MTB World Cup rounds to go and a podium to defend. Currently they are at the third place of the UCI MTB Team Standings with 402 points.
