Patrick Schelling shines with fifth place.
Patrick Schelling shines with fifth place at the Swiss Road Championship after strong teamwork!
It was a hot affair this year’s national championships on the road. Temperatures of almost 40 degrees took a lot of energy. At the same time these national races were held in all European countries.
Here the collected results with Team Vorarlberg Santic participation:
Austria: (Mondsee / 200 KM):
Daniel Geismayr had to let the top group around the new state champion Patrick Konrad (Bora hans-grohe) go on the Postalm with a lot of bad luck. A defective circuit thwarted the dreams of a top placement today. Geismayr is 15th in the heat battle, one place ahead of Maximilian Kuen. Daniel Knapp fights his way across the finish line in 24th place.
Switzerland: (Fischingen / 180 Km)
Sebastian Reichenbach (Groupama FDJ) is the new champion in Switzerland. But before that it was among others the team Vorarlberg Santic, which had a say in the race with Thalmann, Banzer, Stüssi and Schelling. In the final Patrick Schelling sprints from the small group to an excellent fifth place!
Germany: (round course at Sachsenring / 180 KM):
Lukas Meiler was one of the animators of the race and was the leader of the race for a long time. Behind him was Jannik Steimle in the group of favourites. Also the drivers of Bora hans-grohe (Maximilian Schachmann chose himself today as the new German champion). On the final rounds the grains were missed. Only 15 drivers saw the finish. Nevertheless an ambitious race with the knowledge that the form fits towards the Austria Tour.
Spain: (Murcia / 194 KM)
Jose Manuel Diaz Gallego showed a strong race. He will be at the same time as the fourth placed in the final account 18. New Spanish champion is the old champion Alejandro Valverde.
