Race Updates – Vitalogic Astrokalb NÖ Team
It’s almost the end of the racing season
and the Vitalogic women’s team in Funkier gear have some updates for you cycling fans.
Anna Badegruber about here race experience:
On last Saturday i was racing the Austrian hill climb Championship. Which was in Kindberg, Styria.
After my last races, which were not the best based on bad luck which I had. I really was looking forward to
this Austrian Championship. I knew that I was in a good shape but what was happening next was a big surprise
for me. I could follow the women Elite riders and I was able to get away from my little group with one elite
Rider. So I managed to get 8th in the women’s Elite classification and I won the U23 classification.
So now I am the Austrian hill climb Champion in the category U23 and I am really happy about this.
Also because there I showed in which shape I am. And i hope I can show it again in my next races in switzerland.
Nathalie Birli about the Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia Vienna:
Last Sunday, 15th May, Christina Perchtold, Astrid Gaßner, Nathalie Birli and Marlene Schillink took part at the international cycling race‚ Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia Vienna in the heart of Austria.
We started without timekeeping, but we put cameras on our bikes in order to provide film material for the organisers of the race.
The course went over 135km and about 1,300m of climbing through Vienna and parts of Lower Austria. First we thought it’ll be fun, but the windy conditions didn’t make it easy for the riders.
We all did our best to present our Team as good as possible and we were able to capture stunning pictures.
Cold & windy is a non issue if you have the right clothing
If we were in the ranking she would have finished as 9th allover and as 1st woman overall !
I think this shows how tough professional women’s cycling is.
Even the fastest men in an amateur race struggle to keep up with us.
