19 degrees in the sun, the Mediterranean in front of the door, intensive training and a contract extension for three more years at Rose Ultra Sports. Simon Gegenheimer is currently in Mallorca preparing for the coming year. Incidentally, in a family atmosphere, the 25-year-old sprinter signed a new three-year contract with his team, Rose Ultra Sports.
“That's what no other team can offer me. I'm not sitting here in a dark office full of suits. No, we do the contracting very casually on the finca, next to the pool, with a view of the Tramuntana mountains.", according to Gegenheimer.
Thus, the German champion in XCE remains at Steffen Thum's side. The sporting orientation of Gegenheimer remains as before on the entirety of mountain biking. So you will continue to see the German champion, who is strong in sprinting, on the various distances from sprints to marathons to stage races. In this respect, everything will remain the same for the time being, because the competition planning with the main focus on the World Cup will remain in place.
“Simon is one of the fastest mountain bikers in the world, we are very happy to have him in our ranks for such a long time. In addition, Simon is an all-rounder and fits perfectly into the orientation of our future team, which should be internationally successful in all areas of mountain biking.", comments team boss Kerstin Thum on the contract extension.
