In German Zierenberg Tim Smeenge stood confidently at the start for a marathon over 84 kilometers today. His shape is great the latest weeks and recently he won in Norwegian Rjukan a marathon race. For a long time it looked like Smeenge was going to defend his title from last year as he had a good start and was leading solo after a while. ‘It was really hot today and in the last of the three laps I noticed my power was going down. It was ‘diesel’ Peter Hermann who passed me in the last lap en took the victory.’, stated Smeenge.
