First double victory for Gundermann
Chris Gundermann achieved his first double victory this season, battling for first place for overall victory in the Supersprint.
More than 800 visitors were counted by the organizers of the Maxxis Cross Country Championship 2019 in Goldbach near Aschaffenburg at the last race weekend. For the 15th time the GCC started already in Lower Franconia. The ongoing heatwave initially presented some difficulties to the track crew, as dustbinding was a major problem. By deliberately irrigating of the experienced crew, however, it was finally possible to bring the track for the individual races to ideal conditions.
"In the XC Pro I had a nice fight for the lead the first 30 minutes. I was then able to extend my lead and drove the race controlled in first place, "said Gundermann after the first race. With this victory in the series, he finished fourth in a row and remains unbeaten in the Maxxis Cross Country Championship.
Half an hour later, Gundermann already started for the XC Supersprint and finished the first lap on a good fifth place. After the ninth lap, the Thuringian then put the turbo and eventually moved to the top of the field in the last lap. Two races - two wins for the man of the hour - Chris Gundermann.
Already on the 3rd of August we drive to Mühlhausen, the last race in Thuringia for the time being.
