After winning the Austrian championships in Innsbruck in 2008, Markus started with lots of pressure and expectation into this year`s championships. Qualification went great with a clear margin of 13 seconds. During training on sunday, the track was demanding because of the strong rain. Markus was surely benefitting from these conditions.
During the final race itself conditions changed, the track was dry again but still catchy.
After a fault in the 1. part of the track, Markus later grazed a tree, what shifted helmet and goggle and let him fly blind into the champ title with a margin of 0.023 seconds only.
Congratulation Markus, a great closure of a perfect season.
