More than 10,000 people in Heubach, Germany, saw the victories of Scandinavian riders Gunn-Rita Dahle (Nor) and Fredrik Kessiakoff (Swe). Dahle won the hors classe race solo, 2'01 in front of Irina Kalentieva (Rus) and 5'41 ahead of Nina Goehl (Ger), who profited from a flat tire of Adelheid Morath (Ger) on the seventh of eight laps.

Kessiakoff got the lead together with Roel Paulissen. But in lap four, he made a move and Paulissen couldn’t follow. Later, on lap 9 and while still in second place, Paulissen had a bad crash, tearing off the top of his small finger. He was taken to hospital for an operation. That meant Christoph Soukup (Aut) moved up to second place, while Torsten Marx (Ger) showed his good form this season and finished on the podium as third.

A lot of flat tyres influenced the race: Ralph Naef (Swi) and Lado Fumic (Ger) did not finish, and German Moritz Milatz, riding in fourth place, had a crash after his tyre exploded.

"It was a super crowd here in Heubach," said Kessiakoff. "The race is well organised and I like to ride in Germany."

Soukup agreed: "The race here is extremely hard. I took care on the rocky sections. Heubach is one of the best events I have ever done. The German Bundesliga is fantastic, it's not comparable with other countries."

Third placed Marx commented, "I put 2.5 bar in my tires, because I knew the downhill was dangerous. On the demanding uphill part, I think I was one of the strongest riders."

Women's winner Gunn-Rita Dahle said, "It’s amazing to be here in Heubach. Last year I was sick and couldn’t take part. Now I’m happy to be here and take the win. The event is important for me and the whole team."

Kalentieva commented, "For me, second place is a great success. Gunn-Rita is not to be beaten yet. Heubach is my home race, because for the most part of the year I live in Aalen, just ten kilometres from here. So I’m very glad."

Finally, third placed Goehl said, "It’s nice to be on the podium. But actually Adelheid should have gotten this third place. She had a lot of bad luck."

After three races, the women's ranking of German Bundesliga is led by Irina Kalentieva (155), followed by Dahle (140) and Ivonne Kraft (135). Kessiakoff took over the lead in the men's ranking (125). Soukup (112) is second, Martin Gujan (Swi, 89) is third.
