Meggle shines at home and climbs up to rank 6
Dynavolt Intact GP Junior Matthias Meggle competed on the Sachsenring the same weekend of the Motorrad Grand Prix Germany and took places eighth and sixth in the third Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup of the year.
Having previously almost scored his first podium finish in Assen one week before, Matthias Meggle continued his upward performance at the Sachsenring.
On Friday he scored his best qualifying result in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup so far claiming 8th position.
On Saturday in the rain, he was again one of the top runners and was partly riding in 4th position, but then fell back to 8th place in the last laps. In the second race on Sunday he was in a group that fought for position six. Finally, he emerged as winner of the group and crossed the Sachsenring finish line as 6th.
With eight and ten points, the 16-year-old climbed up to 6th of the Red Bull Rookies rankings, two points behind Deniz Öncü, the winner of race one on Saturday.
In July 'Matze' will take part in the Moto3 races of the FIM Repsol CEV Junior World Championship in Valencia / Spain and in Estoril / Portugal, and then the Red Bull Rookies will return from August 4-6 on the same weekend as MotoGP in Brno / Czech Republic.
