First podium for Matze in the Rookies Cup
Dynavolt Intact GP Junior rider Matthias Meggle is progressing in great steps. On the weekend of the Czech Grand Prix last weekend he stormed to second place and thus celebrated his first Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup podium!
"Matze" showed a fantastic race on Saturday in hot Brno, not only because he finished second behind Can Öncü, the leader of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, but also because of his clever strategy within the big 8 riders top group. At first, he observed everything, waited for the right moment and finally attacked.
On Sunday in the second race he also kept his nerves and showed again that he has gained a lot of self-confidence. In the first laps he held fifth, sixth position. Then he fell back a little in the pouring rain until he felt safer in the treacherous conditions and started a new catch up. Finally, he finished fourth just three seconds behind winner Deniz Öncü.
Already this weekend, the now 17-year-old, who's birthday was on 29 July, in Spielberg / Austria is looking to improve his current fifth overall position.
