SSES#1 - Raphaela Richter wins in Treuchtlingen!


This weekend the european enduro season really kicked off with the first race of the Specialized SRAM Enduro series in Treuchtlingen GER. Over 500 riders from 12 nations took the trip to Treuchtlingen for the season opener.

With pride i can tell you that our youngster (18 years old), Raphaela Richter, raced her Radon Slide Carbon 650B enduro bike to the top step of the podium. After 7 special stages, Raphaela had over 1 minute lead on the girl in 2nd. Crazy fast!

This is what Rapaela had to say after the race:

“After my 4th place in the prolog on saturday i was a bit nervous for the race on Sunday. I tried to ride smooth to not make mistakes. Sometimes i had the feeling that i didn’t ride agressive enough, but when i look at the times it worked out pretty well. Bring on the next races :)”

Petrik Brückner was struggling a bit. After a good qualification on saturday Petrik good not really get it together on sunday. A crash on stage 4, which resulted in a 50th place on this stage, spoilt a podium position for Petrik. Petrik closed off the day with a 2nd place on stage 7, which gave him a 14th place overall.

“I need to get more consistant to make it to podium, and of course stay on the bike. The 2nd place on the last stage gives me a confidence boost for the upcoming race in Riva del Garda” Petrik Brueckner


Congrates to Benny Strasser of the Radon Magura DH Team who took a 5th overall in Treuchtlingen!Next weekend the European Enduro Series will start in Punta Ala ITA. James Shirley will defend the Radon colors at this race. The whole team will be together again a week later at the famous BIKE festival in Riva del Garda ITA.
