Team Vitalo Future Cycling Season Wrap-up

Posted on December 19 2019

 

The second half of the season was full of racing with the biggest goals of 2019 – National Championships and the World Championship in marathon. Czech national championship in marathon where our duo dominated, taking first (Martin) and second (Kristian). For Martin, it was his first-ever National title, Kristian as a defending champion arrived very close behind. Martin Stošek also took part in the National championship in cross-country and got a silver medal! This was followed by another dominant performance at Dolomiti Superbike – probably the biggest and one of the most prestigious marathon races in Europe with around 5 thousand participants. Martin and Kristian finished 1st and 2nd again, two riders from the same team, something that in the 25-year history of this race has happened only twice.

 


Additional to this Martin continued his winning streak at the Kolo pro Život series, he made it 5 out of 5. However, the biggest achievement arrived at the most important race of the year, World Championship that took place in Switzerland on a very demanding track. Kristian and Martin focus on this and gave the preparation everything. They had an altitude training camp in Livigno and spent additional days at Swiss to pre-ride the course and choose the right equipment. After 2 bronze medals (2012 and 2016) Kristian Hynek celebrated for the first time in his career the silver medal and the gold was really very very close. Until the last meters he fought with the Columbian Paez and at the finish line, the time difference was only 26 seconds! Martin confirmed his amazing first ever marathon season and finished 7th. At the very end of the season, Kristian and Martin traveled to Brasil to race the Brasil Ride stage race. They finished in 4th place overall and gained important experiences, which will be very useful for the upcoming 2020 season and that one is going to be epic, more details to come!
