National Championships

Jungels makes the double at the Nationals
The young Luxembourger was victorious on home turf and capped-off a strong Sunday for Etixx – Quick-Step.

Bob Jungels has successfully defended his road race national title, two days after doing the same thing in the individual time trial race.

Greipel German champion
Lotto Soudal gained the German national title, thanks to André Greipel. Erfurt hosted the German Championships this year. Unlike the Belgian road race it was a completely flat course without any obstacles. André Greipel beat Max Walscheid and Marcel Kittel in the sprint.

Tony Martin takes 6th ITT national title
The German returned to winning ways and became the 14th Etixx – Quick-Step rider to score a victory this season.

2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and now 2016. All these years have one thing in common: Tony Martin’s success at the National Championships in the individual time trial race. Held in Struefdorf, on a 41-km long rolling course, the race saw Tony enjoy a very strong start, and by the time he passed at the first intermediate checkpoint, it became more than obvious that he’s heading towards his maiden victory of the season, one which the 31-year-old took in commanding fashion.
