Triumph in jubilee edition for German rider

As well as last stage, overall win in the race belongs to German rider, but as Benjamin Joerges won last stage, Sönke Wegner took overall with his second place on last stage. The stage with start in Walim seemed to be very tough due to terrain condition, length and ascent. It was as well the most moderate stage due to mentioned factors. Last stage was following interchangeably by hard, asphalt pavements, steep climbs and quite flat sections in forest and fields.


Moreover besides very tough climbs, we had some technical, comfortable section along border trails mixed with very steep technical climbs/ descents along them.


Unfortunately lots of mud, which was an effect of Thursday’s heavy raining, didn’t make a ride easy in some areas in the middle section of stage. But for sure closer the finish line easier and more impressive the ride was due to some fields spreading landscapes around and very specific climbs especially in Czech Republic short section of the stage.


Of course not forgetting about singletrails mixed with varied stone-full ducts leading to terminal place – beautiful Kudowa Zdrój – were something like sum up of last 6 days. We had a pleasure to go through all race once again, during closing banquet and movie show, which was compiled from all shots taken by all stages.


Those days will be remembered for long time by all of us. Hope to see You all next year.
