Ralf Kropp Winner Of MTB Marathon in Furtwangen.
It's his 4th win already in the running season of the senior's class. In sunny weather but with a little low temperatures of minus 10 degrees it went on the 90 km route. Despite of the on mostly parts dry race track, there was enough moistre left in the dark woods, which demanded a higher awareness of the riders. At some parts the organiser even recommended to push or to carry the bike, which was ignored by some riders though. After 55 km Ralf Kropp of Rohloff-Endorfin started his rigorous attack and definitely won the race with 12 min. ahead of Werner Baur of the IBC DIMB RacingTeam.
