Christian Ahlmann Gets Back to the German Team
As Daniel Deusser did last month, Christian Ahlmann has reached an agreement with the German federation, and has signed the athlete’s contract allowing him back into the Mannschaft after a year’s absence.
So Otto Becker, the German chef d’équipe, clocks up two pieces of good news, and will be able to count on two of the best riders in the world on his team, notably for the coming European Championships.
Christian Ahlmann is happy with this issue, even if all is not perfect: “It took time, but we had good talks. The Federation came to us, and had answers to our problems and questions. But, a lot still remains to be done, and changed. I have always been proud to ride for Germany, and an athlete greatest wish is to compete for his country.”
