Words | Press release

Maximilian Spies (D/KTM Kosak Racing) sets several milestones with overall victory at the ADAC MX Masters in Tensfeld. After three races in front of around 11,000 enthusiastic spectators, the class rookie defeated Tom Koch (D/KTM Kosak Racing) and Jordi Tixier (F/KMP Honda Racing powered by Krettek) at the weekend. Max Nagl (D/KMP Honda Racing powered by Krettek) ended a difficult weekend with a race win. After a technical failure in the opening race, however, he loses some of his lead at the top of the table.

In the event classification, Spies came out on top with three podium finishes and a five-point lead over Koch, Tixier, Sterry and Ken Bengtson (S). Nagl lost 21 points to Koch in sixth place overall over the weekend, but still leads the table by ten points

“That was a great weekend! All three races were exciting. I felt good on the track right from the start and, despite my class promotion, I wanted to take overall victory in Tensfeld for the third time in a row. In the third run I lost the radiator cap and with it the cooling water, but my KTM held up well. I’m all the happier that I got the first overall victory of my career in this class”.

On the other hand, Red Plate holder Max Nagl said:

“I experienced a black weekend: in the first race, the retirement with technical problems, a bad start in the second race, including a crash later on. In the third race, I successfully managed to limit the damage by winning from start to finish. But sometimes that’s the way it is in motorsport and I thank my team for the good support. Now I’m looking positively to the future in Holzgerlingen”.

In the Youngster Cup class, Spaniard Oriol Oliver swept three motos to take the season’s second hat-trick and fourth overall win. The WZ KTM rider was unbeatable all weekend long. Edvard Bidzans (3-2-2) and Nico Greutmann (6-6-5) rounded the podium.

Oliver takes a huge advantage of 98 points over his teammate Cato Nickel who misses the round due to an ankle injury.
