Milatz wins cross country in Saalhausen

Langvad surprises some to earn women's victory

Moritz Milatz (BMC Mountain Bike Team) and Annika Langvad (Easton Rockets) took the second round of German MTB-Bundesliga in Saalhausen. Milatz defeated Manuel Fumic (Cannondale) and Thomas Litscher (Felt-Ötztal-X Bionic) while Langvad rode a long solo to her win ahead of world champion Maja Wloszczowska and surprising Mona Eiberweiser.

At first, Milatz was together with Fumic in the front, but Fumic couldn't hold the speed of the German national champion. So he was dropped and reabsorbed by the chasing group including Emil Lindgren (Rabobank-Giant), Fabian Giger (Rabobank-Giant) and Litscher.

Litscher broke away from that group on lap four of eight but couldn't close the gap to Milatz. Instead, Fumic put the hammer down and left behind teammates Giger and Lindgren, caught Litscher and went on to take second place.

"I'm happy about the win after all the bad luck in the previous weeks," said Milatz. "I didn't want to make it a solo so early, but suddenly Manuel was riding slower. Today everything was fine."

"Moritz's speed was too high for me," said Fumic before saying he was satisfied with the race after a week of hard training.

Litscher found the race "a bit too much after my breakaway from the chasing group, but at least I'm okay with the result."

Lindgren was fourth and Giger fifth.

Women's race

In the women's race, Langvad immediately took the lead. After the first lap, she had a gap fo 40 seconds ahead of Wloszczowska, Eiberweiser, Alexandra Engen (Rothaus Poison-Bikes) and Elisabeth Sveum (Merida Smart Safety).

Wloszczwoska tried hard in the following four laps to catch the Danish woman, but she had only gained 20 seconds by the time they headed into the final lap.

Then Langvad accelerated again to take the win with 41 seconds ahead of Wloszczowska. Behind, Eiberweiser celebrated a comeback. She was able to overtake U23 Pietermaritzburg World Cup winner Sveum and got the third spot on the podium. Hanna Klein completed the podium in fifth.

"It was my strategy today to escape early. So I can ride my own pace. It was one of my goals to win one Bundesliga race this year and I made it," said Langvad.

Wloszczowska said she had a bad week before the race. "I was afraid of this race. but now I'm satisfied with the second place. Annika was very strong."

Eiberweiser showed herself happy with her comeback after suffering from backaches for a long time. "I still have problems, but today the pain was not in the legs. I'm very happy to have a race like this. It's been a long time."
