Queen of Mud: Hanka Kupfernagel

Last weekend Hanka earned her 12th national cyclocross title. She showed an outstanding performance on the heavy track in Döhlau/Bavaria. She left her biggest opponents behind and finished after a race time of 43:15 min and saved a 1:40 min lead to the finish line.

Hanka said about her victory: “I am so happy about this victory. I could bring my best performance on the track, which was very hard to ride, especially the tricky downhill section”. Most of the competitors complained especially about this dangerous part, but Hanka was one of the athletes, who could drive pretty fast  through this section.

In two weeks the world championships in Hoogerheide (NED) will be the next race for Hanka. There she will start in her brand new national champion styled shirt from X-BIONIC®. We wish her all the best for the competition!

Off road season: Cyclocross with Hanka

If you are a road biker, you know that it is hard to ride from autumn to spring during the winter season. Cyclocross could be the right alternative kind of sport for you: it is short, more intensive and makes a lot of fun. We had a photo shooting with Hanka last week and will bring you a small off road guide with some tipps for that sport. The pro athlete and many times world and national champion will give you some tipps for your start to the cyclocross sport.
