mountain bike team

Luck and misfortune were close together when 15 riders of the mountain bike team "schwarze berge" (black mountains) at the fourth robbacher kidscup not far from biebergemund they started. The geroder mountain bikers made up the strongest team – and at the end of the race day seven of them could be happy about a podium place. Three times the mountain bikers from rhon could celebrate a double success. In the age group U15 erik metz (singenrain) and david barthelmes (oberleichtersbach) finished second and third. Erik metz had even been leading the field for long stretches of the race. But in the last round he had to let the one year older chaser go.

Also in the race of the girls of the age group U13 there was a double success. Here it was anna schubert (place) and hannah bienmuller (geroda) who finished in second and third place respectively. The same result was achieved by the youngsters in the U9 age group: johann schubert (platz) in second place, max wirth (geroda) in third place. There was a lot of excitement about this third place, on which the geroder was put only after a protest. Despite the close but clear finish, the judges had initially placed him fourth.

No chance after a fall
The good performance of the team from geroda was rounded off by the second place of diana schlereth (geroda) in the age group U15 (w). The races for other riders were not quite so fortunate. Moritz zehner and louis metz were forced to dismount shortly after the start due to the crash of riders ahead of them and then had no chance of catching up with the front of the field.

A similar fate befell maria zehner (oberleichtersbach). Not long after the start, she too had to give up all hopes of a top place due to a crash caused by someone else. But the unlucky one of the day was moritz bienmuller (geroda), who missed a place on the podium by only one second in the race of the U11 after a race distance of four kilometers.

This sunday,30. June, the riders of the MTB-team "schwarze-berge" will be again at the start, this time at her home race, the second "schwarze-berge-kids-cup". All mountain bikers between the ages of five and 16 were allowed to participate. Venue is the MTB-ubungsgelande at the road between place and oehrberg. The first start is scheduled for 11 o'clock. Registration is still possible until shortly before the start.

It is not necessary to own a mountain bike, you can also start with a normal bike. Mountain bikers, who are no longer eligible to start for age reasons, were allowed to test the training obstacles of the geroder mountain bikers themselves after the races – and to cheer on the youngsters during the races.
