Leopold König

“Even as a kid I was very goal-oriented and ready to take on any challenge. Nothing has changed along the way. As a rider, my biggest strength is as a climber, and long, difficult climbs suit me in particular.”

This is Leopold König’s second year riding for Team NetApp. He is another rider who has been able to develop enormously with Team NetApp’s racing program. The current Czech Vice Champion is strong in the mountains and during time trials. He demonstrated that in impressive style in 2010 with victory in the Oberösterreich Rundfahrt. Last year, Leopold was Team NetApp’s most successful rider. He also gave the team its biggest win by taking second place overall at the Österreich Rundfahrt. It was his top win thus far, and he was the best up-and-coming rider there. In addition, he placed third overall at the Tour de l’Ain and fifth overall at the Tour of Britain, and he also claimed a podium spot for a stage in Great Britain.
