We are proud of our Pushbikers! The Challenge Ciclista Mallorca demanded a lot from our road riders in terms of sport, but also offered a lot. The four days of racing brought forth many things: anticipation and excitement, tension and exhaustion. Snapshots that accompany us as a team and always bring us back down to earth. The here and now, what is the team already capable of, and what is still ahead of us? One thing is certain: steep paths motivate!
A highlight in our road racing calendar: the Challenge Ciclista Mallorca. A great opportunity and a huge challenge for the Maloja Pushbikers. Sporting at the highest level, with teams from the World Tour and Pro Tour, with demanding routes on the island, with extremely strong international competition.
Already at the one-day race GP Rhodes ( UCI 1.2) Mikà Heming could record a remarkable fifth place. This was followed by a top 20 position in the prologue and 3rd place at the end of the first stage for Heming. At the end of the Rhodes Tour, the Maloja Pushbikers finished 7th in the team classification and 17th for Corey Davis. Sporting Director Rupert Hödlmoser sees this as the Road team's first major success.
Sharing values and standing up for them together - that's what matters. On the last weekend in March, we launched an action where great athletes, types and characters came together to show attitude. The idea: We support the Traunstein café Wiggerl17 by delivering snacks and orders by bike on two days, generating donations for the social support programmes of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.
As a partner of the non-profit Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, we want to inspire children and young people for cycling and collect donations for the foundation's social support programmes.
Top 10 finishes, first UCI points and valuable points for the Olympic qualification: the Maloja Pushbikers Road and MTB have contested the first races of the 2021 season. The start of the season was overshadowed by a serious crash at the Istrian Spring Trophy.
The FEMs love cycling and the adventures that come out of it. When Lena and Sofie sent their first text message to Christian Grasmann in June 2016, probably no one believed that something like the FEM Team would come out of it. But there was a vision - and it's still alive today.
Our MTB team will again compete as a UCI Elite Team in the World Cup and the Continental road team wants to achieve a top 3 in the German Europe Tour Ranking
