Vlad Dascalu (U-23) and Florian Vogel (Elite Men) climbed up to the podium at the first round of the XCO World Cup 2019 that was held in Albstadt (Germany).

The Galfer Bike representatives finished with two podia and seven Top Ten: in Elite Men the race was marked by the great storm that left the track impassable. Swiss rider Florian Vogel (KMC-ekoi-Orbea) seemed to feel in his element and rode among the leading group throughout the race and finished in 5th place. His team mates Thomas Litscher and Milan Vader finished 15th and 23rd, respectively. Carlos Coloma (BH Templo Cafés) made a great comeback from the 40th to the 21st final place. Pablo Rodríguez (Primaflor-Mondraker) crossed the finish line in 24th place.

In Elite Women Rebecca McConnell (Primaflor-Mondraker) was coming back to competition and she did it brilliantly, finishing 8th in a dry race. The debut of two young Galfer Bike representatives in Elite Women was also great: Malene Degn (KMC-ekoi-Orbea) finished 10th and Rocío del Alba (BH Templo Cafés) was 13th. Belgian rider Githa Michiels (Primaflor-Mondraker) finished in 15th place due to her injury.

Vlad Dascalu (Brujulabike Team) had the best result of the weekend with the second place in U-23 Men. Last year he won one event of the World Cup and this year he fought hard until the end, crossing the finish line just 2 seconds behind the winner. Catalan rider Jofre Cullell (Megamo) did a good race and finished 5th.

In U-23 Women, French rider Helene Clauzel (KMC-ekoi-Orbea) achieved a great place. She was 5th after recovering from a serious injury.

The next round of the UCI XCO World Cup will be held at Nove Mesto on May, 24th-26th.
