Emanuel Buchmann new German champion
Raubling, 28 June 2015 Emanuel Buchmann of the German pro team BORA Argon 18 has surprisingly won the German championships in road cycling. After 205 kilometers, the 22 year old sat won with an attack in the finale. For Buchmann, who is riding his first season in the pro ranks, today’s success is also his first professional win. Only on Tuesday Buchmann was appointed to the line up of his team for the Tour de France. Thus, the new German champion jersey will premiere right at the biggest cycling race in the world starting next weekend.
„It’s a crazy day for us! It took us six German championships to win this jersey. In the last group of 16 riders, we were represented with still five guys. This shows how compact as a team we rode today. Our tactic was to avoid a sprint and therefore, individual attacks were planned in the finale. And the first one of Emanuel was already the decisive one. Emanuel isn’t a winner by coincidence, but with him one of the strongest riders in the peloton won the race. Hats off to the performance of such a young guy“, comments a pleased BORA – ARGON 18 Team Manager Ralph Denk on the victory.
„First the Tour nomination and now the champion jersey these are overwhelming events within one wee k for a young rider. The jersey is not a burden for Emanuel, it will rather inspire him for the Tour de France. I hope he’ll line up at the start in Utrecht with strong nerves“, Denk concluded
