Last weekend, 60 riders made their way to the first hill crit in Germany, the ‘Steuerradtage’ organised by team ONEWAYFIXED in Marlow, a town in the north of the country next to the Baltic Sea. The circuit was about 1.3 km long and traced around Marlow’s market place right through the town. The circuit demanded both technical skills and endurance as the circuit had a sloping cobblestone road heading towards the finish line and a 90 degree curve right after the downhill segment. Besides the challenging circuit, the wind played a big role during the race.
In the end it was Johanna Jahnke who was the strongest in the women’s field followed by Silja Ketelsen and Tini Dreher. For the men’s race it was Maximilian Höflich taking the win with Timon Seubert taking 2nd place and Johannes Killisperger settling for 3rd place.
