It s a dream to go with World Cup gold.
The Martin-tangled Martin had announced on Sunday morning to end his career after the World Cup and thus no longer fulfill his until 2022 contract with Jumbo-Visa. In order to give the possibility of a shiny end with precious metal, Martin also renounced the road race. The plan went on: completely exhausted and sweaty he sat on the asphalt, only then he thought after the intermediate best of his teammates.
On a wonderful September day, on the flat course from the coastal village turned into Bruges, which Martin is still so valuable at the age of 36 years. The nickname armored car , which refers to Martin s impressive time-drawing arts, had his authorization until the last professional competition. The Cottbuser and the Three Women Klein, Brennauer and Kröger were already in 2019 in England part of the silver team, the strong women s trio also has recently brought gold on the track at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. In the previous year, the Mixed Coronabatting was deleted from the World Cup program.
Martin, who was already overturned by his feelings in the sixth place in single time, left nothing to chance at the very last chapter. Already in the morning sun, the German men s trio was beamed parallel to the coast by Knokke-Heist. Cited – of course – by specialist Martin, who has no concrete plans for his further future.
