Cycling: The reigning German U23 champion Christian Pfäffle will ride for the Lexware mountain bike team again in 2015. The man from Neuffen extended his contract with the Upper Black Forest Mountain Bike Team by one year.
Christian Pfäffle will remain with the team in his fourth and final U23 year. There was no reason for the 21-year-old to change colors. “Everything has worked well for the last two years, I have everything I need at Lexware. I think it's a good solution for me to stay in the team for my last U23 year.", explains Christian Pfaffle.
He points out that he can concentrate fully on the sport in his familiar environment. “The organisation, the team, the Scott bikes, I know everything and know that I can rely on them. This saves me from having to adapt to changing conditions and I can continue to develop without losing energy,” says Pfäffle, who is driving under the Lexware flag for the second year.
Team manager Daniel Berhe is happy about the signing of the contract. "With Christian we can continue our work with a focus on U23 and juniors at a high level. He is at the top in Germany and he is also moving towards medal ranks internationally. We want to continue to support him on this path,” explains Daniel Berhe, who is also pleased to have signed the contract offer so early. At the same time, Pfäffle would also serve as a role model for younger drivers. “He is very conscientious as an athlete and a pleasure to work with. The young drivers can also benefit from this”, says Berhe to Swabia. His biggest successes so far are the German Championship title in the U23 category, fourth place at the Eliminator World Championships, second and fifth place in the Eliminator World Cup and seventh place at the 23 U2013 World Championships.
