Herrenknecht employee is runner-up Bike Trial world champion
With Dominik Oswald another Herrenknecht-sponsored athlete has returned successful from a world championship. At this year's Bike Trial World Championships in Chengdu, China, from November 8 to 11, the 20-year-old Ettenheimer won the silver medal twice – in the team ranking with the German team and in the individual category. "I was overjoyed that after qualifying for the individual final I even won the silver medal. The World Championships were very impressive for me," says the trialer.
With Dominik Oswald, Herrenknecht supports an employee who, after completing his 3-year-apprenticeship, has worked half-days at the Schwanau plant since 2016 as an industrial mechanic. Bike Trial, a kind of skill test in difficult terrain using a bike without suspension and without a saddle, has been his great passion for 14 years now. With success: at German Championships, Junior World Championships and European Championship competitions, Dominik Oswald has been up with the leaders for years. At his home club MSC Münstertal he also trains a group of juniors aged between nine and thirteen and is already passing on his knowledge to the next generation.
