Lightweight did it again: Roberto Cunico succeeded in winning this years´ Ötztaler Radmarathon - on Lightweight MEILENSTEIN OBERMAYER - Congrats!!

We had the chance to do a little interview with the winner:

Q1: How do you feel today, do you have more pain in the legs or in the head from the after-race-party?
A1: At the moment I have more pain in my head after the race party... Yesterday I was drunk 😵

Q2: Which bike did you use? With what Setup?
A2: I use a Beraldo Bike, it's an Italian frame all made in Italy. My setup for yesterday was 50/34 in front and 12/29 on the back. Wheels are MEILENSTEIN OBERMAYER.

Q3: Why do you use Tubulars?
A3: I use tubulars(25mm) because the bike is more performing, better in corners, more speed. Also in downhill it is safer and I feel better than with clinchers.

Q4: Did you plan to attack that early?
A4: I didn't plan to attack in Jaufenpass, but when I realized that the first group was going too slow for me, I decided to try... I did the best time of all years in Jaufenpass climb.

Q5: Are you going to try to beat the 7 hours barrier if perfect conditions will allow this goal?
5) Also yesterday was a good day for race record, but we went too slow climbing the Brennerpass. Next year I want to try to finish under 7h.

Q6: What´s your next target for this season?
A6: I will attending at Endura Alpentraum race at 13th of September.

Q7: How many km do you ride per year?
A7: About 20.000-25.000km incl. races.

CU at the Endura Alpentraum - Team Alpecin and Lightweight will be there too!
