Längenfelder impresses on his return to racing – podium
After 112 days, the starting gate for Simon Längenfeld and many other GP athletes in Dalečín in the Czech Republic fell for the first time last Sunday.
Simon Längenfelder, who set the fastest time in his qualification group, came brilliantly out of the starting machine in both races and was the first to take the first corner on both times. In the first race, however, Längenfelder gave up the lead in the second corner due to a small mistake and followed the leader. In the following laps, Längenfelder did not manage to find a clean rhythm and consumed a lot of energy, causing him to go back a little bit at the end of the race. At the end of the race, Längenfelder saw the checkered flag as fifth.
In the second race, the DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors athlete Simon Längenfelder fought a three-way battle with two opponents for second place behind the leader. Längenfelder found a good rhythm in the second race and was able to keep up with his two opponents over the entire distance and secure 3rd place in the end.
Simon Längenfelder took 3rd place in the daily classification.
Simon Längenfelder: “Overall, I am very happy with the weekend. In the first run I didn’t find any flow and therefore used too much power and ended up fives. In the second race it worked out a lot better and I was able to secure third place. ”
Justin Amian: “I am super happy that the gate drop again. Simon Längenfelder showed that he did his homework during the break and today earned third place and the first podium for DIGA Procross GASGAS Factory Juniors. ”
