Max Kuen in third place in the final of the e-Cycling Liga!
Four questions for Austro-Canadian Jack Burke!
The young Austrian Maximilian Kuen sprinted to third place in the fifth race of the e-Cycling League Austria. The German Jonas Rapp from Team Hrinkows advarics won. “This time it worked with the technology. The Harrogate World Championship course was super tight to the finish. I was always in the top group, but Rapp and Kepplinger were a bit faster. After the many basics units on the street to match in the Zwift race on the Kinetic role was super intense today. The e-Cycling Liga, which was introduced at short notice, was a great idea that will definitely continue in the coming winter!
Four questions to Jack Burke, the Canadian globetrotter and “Vorarlberg fan”!
Jack Burke (CAN / 25) professional for five years, new at Team Vorarlberg Santic in 2020
Already raced this year?
I was unlucky in my only races this season in Croatia and was involved in a rather wild fall for the last few kilometers. And that’s it with races so far.
After shutdown due to Corona – how did you deal with this situation?
I made the best of it. As a mountaineer, I was able to use the time and prepare very intensively for the remaining season that might still be around, or I am fully on schedule and always ready for races.
What have you done in training in the past two months?
I have used the great weather in the past few weeks. I often drove quite “extended” units with Felix Meo (NZL), my teammate. 28 to 36 hours and 18,000 to 24,000 vertical meters per week. We also drove into the eternal ice. Up to the ski destinations in Sölden and Kaunertal / Tirol.
How do you like it in Vorarlberg?
I live in Region Bregenzerwald and am in a region that I have dreamed of since childhood. I explore the entire area here and maybe know it better than many locals. Everyone here is incredibly friendly and helpful. Luckily I left my skis at home, otherwise I might not have been on the bike that much (laughs)!
Your Jack and “Servas” (Greetings from the Vorarlbergs)
The look ahead points to certain bright spots. Depending on the government decision, individual time trials and similar competitions may be possible in the near future. The pro riders deserve it – they’re ready for these exams!
