Last saturday, the 22nd of july, the 1st Sprintermeeting took place at the Cologne Radstadion. With several big names in the professional track cycling game, it was very interesting to see some of the best teams competing against each other and this just a few days before the Olympic Games 2012 in London start. So besides the German Track Cycling Team, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Czech Republic and also the British Team attended this event.
Also I had the chance to meet some of the riders in person, especially those who ride the AURORA velcro straps in their competitions. It was great to get feedback and also talk with Sebastian Döhrer and Tobias Wächter. Also Maximilian Levy and Kristina Vogel will sport the AURORA velcro straps during their races at the Olympic Games in London. From what I saw at the Sprintermeeting, I would say that they both definitely go for Gold in London. Maximilian Levy won first place in the Sprint against Robert Förstermann and also set a new record time at the Cologne track!
Besides these two riders, Tobi Wächter tested a new custom version of the AURORA velcro straps during his races.
The first feedback was good and I hope that my gear will help all of them during their upcoming races.
Tobias Wächter – Keirin
Kristina Vogel and Miriam Welte – Sprint Final
