Patrick Fankhauser wins at Swiss IC Track Nats Rd3

The Langenthal track played host to the recent third round of the Swiss IC Track Nationals. In the 200mm class and on Friday’s practice it was Xray’s Patrick Fankhauser with the fastest time, some 0.2 seconds ahead of teammate Traugott Schär. During Saturday’s qualifiers however Patrick ran into some issues caused by the high temperatures and so he only qualified in 4th place behind Thilo Thödtmann, Niclas Scherrer and Traugott Schär. In the 30-minute main final it was at first Shepherd’s own Thilo Tödtmann who lead the race, however he ran into technical issues at about the 20-minute mark that promoted Patrick, who had to recover from a collision in the opening stages, into the lead that he would hold onto until the checkered flag. Some seven laps behind Fankhauser it was Xray driver Michael Schäfer on the runner-up spot as Jakob Bühler (Xray) rounded out the top 3 results.
