Team WIPOTEC wins the Team Time Trial in Genthin
Road bike juniors continue to have a chance to win the overall ranking of the German Cycling League
With the victory in the team time trial of the German championships, the road bike juniors of the WIPOTEC team in Genthin (Saxony-Anhalt) managed a surprise victory that nobody had expected: The quartet consisting of Lukas Märkl, Jan Kuhn, Moritz Plambeck, and Leon Brescher left the highly favoured team from Auto Eder Bayern eleven seconds behind in a fabulous 57:50 minutes. Thus they celebrated their second victory of the season in the seventh classification race. Before the grand finale on the Bilster Berg automobile track, on 7 October, the WIPOTEC team is now in second place in the overall team time trial ranking, trailing the first place by a mere point.
"The guys were highly motivated and were aiming at a medal. But coming in first was a big surprise," said Team Manager Andreas Märkl. It was the first victory of a street quartet from Rhineland-Palatinate in the German team championship. WIPOTEC since made a commitment to support the team as a name sponsor for two more years.
