I am overjoyed to have won the German championship title on the Sachsenring. It is a very great honor for me to be able to ride the Tour de France in the jersey of the German champion. The team rode a super race today. From the start we were underway fast, and were always pushing things. With a temperature of nearly 40 degrees, we quickly noticed that more and more riders couldn't follow our high tempo. Out of 182 starters, only 15 finished. That shows how selective the race was. Everyone on my team did a classy job today and in the end we could fill the entire podium. It was simply perfect today!
Next week the Tour de France starts. Being able to ride there one day was always my dream. It makes me unbelievably proud to wear the German colors in France. I am very excited as to what I will experience there. Until then, Yours, Maximilian.
