Day 2 - June 30: Elite Men's Road Race, 207.5 km

Hondo champion of Germany

Telekom continued its incredible run of victories in the German Road Championships with sprinter Danilo Hondo taking his first national title in Bühl. It was the 10th win for the national team in 10 years, despite the strength of other teams such as Gerolsteiner and Team Coast. Hondo outsprinted breakaway companion Uwe Peschel (Gerolsteiner) after the two had escaped with three laps to go. Third place went to Erik Zabel (Telekom) who won the bunch sprint 1'11 behind the leaders.

Although the breakaways only had a 33 second lead with one lap to go with Team Coast doing much of the chasing behind, the numerical superiority of Telekom and Gerolsteiner, combined with the strength of Peschel and Hondo was enough to ensure they stayed away. The only threat to Hondo was when Peschel attacked on the climb, but the Cottbus sprinter was able to match him, and was always going to be the better sprinter.

Hondo dedicated his win to his recently deceased mother, and is now looking towards the Tour de France where he'll be an important aide to Erik Zabel.
