Cyclist of the month – Team Topeak Ergon’s Wolfram Kurschat

In a monthly vote on the popular German web portal, rad-net.de – a site covering everything cycle racing for German language users – Wolfram has won the title of cyclist of the month.

His 26.4% of the vote saw him beat the road cyclist Heinrich Haussler (Cervelo Test Team) and Junior MTB rider Mona Eiberweiser (SKS MIG Team).  “It’s cool.  I mean if you compare mountain biking to other type of professional cycling, it is clear that the credibility has gone up in the last 10 years.  It’s a real honour to be voted for by the public as a professional cyclist”, Wolfram responded when asked about what it means to him.  It is clear that his two World Cup Podium silvers this year, have not escaped anyone’s attention.

This Sunday will see the father of three competing an the Heubach Bundesliga (National Series) race.  He will be celebrating his birthday on the day too, turning 34.  The race is set to attract many World Cup riders, who will be there not only for the Bundesliga points, but also the UCI overall points that are on offer.  Team Topeak Ergon’s Irina Kalentieva and Robert Mennen will also be at the start.  For Irina, this is her local race, as it is only a few miles from her home.

All in all, it is set to be a good weekend.  A challenging 4.7km loop will see the riders tested.  A climb gaining 170 meters in height, and a demanding downhill will leave either a huge grin or tears on people’s faces.
