National MX News : Namibian Inter-Series
11.10.2007 Moto Cross Inter-Series 2007 - Preview

Jägermeister - German Team

The distributors of the "Jägermeister" brand are engaged in mx-racing for the past 4 years already. At Gallina Moto Cross Park the afterrace-party is traditionally known as the Jägermeister-Party amongst the Windhoek Youths. Since 2005 they even went further and sponsored individual mx-riders like Ronnie Adams, Shawn Bruwer and Jose Teixeira. Jägermeister, being a German product, it was quite obvious that they would become the sponsors of the German-Team.
Benjamin Kolberg (GER)
Benjamin Kolberg (GER)
In the Open-Class Germany will be represented by Benjamin Kolberg who hails from Templin in eastern Germany. Benjamin was born on 15 July 1987. He raced his first MX-Race at the age of 8 years on a Kawasaki. In 1996 he became runner-up in the Regional Championships Berlin-Brandenburg. One year later he became Regional-Champion. In 2001 he finishes as runner-up in the 85cc Super-Cup Championship and he finishes 5th overall in the German Championships. In 2002 and 2003 he rides for the Jef Jansen Honda Team with mixed results before he joins the Kölling Yamaha Team in 2004. In the end of the season he manages some Top-15 results in the German Championships 125cc. That same year he raced the Namibian Inter-Series where he finished in a good 6th position. In 2005 Benjamin again raced in the Inter-Series (some call it Inter-Series bug) and finished in an astonishing 3rd on the rostrum. In 2006 Benjamin participated in the German Championships with mixed results, still waiting for the breaktrough, but that same year in Namibia he fullfilled himself a dream, by becoming "Namibia International Champion". A title he wants to defend in the 2007 Inter-Series!

The 2nd guy is Mr. Kölling personally who was one of East-Germany's best in the 80's. He still is racing Veteran-Classes in Germany and in Namibia he will represent Germany in the Clubmen's Class. His spot on the rostrum is booked annually!
Christoph Schade (GER)
Christoph Schade (GER)
The absolute "Star" in the German line-up is Christoph Schade. He did, unfortunately, not supply a complete rider-profile therefore our infos are limited. His resumee looks impressive though, Regional Champion of Saxony-Anhalt 125cc Class in the year 1996. 5th spot in the 1999 OMK-Pokal Championship 125cc Class. Thereafter he finsihed 6th overall in the proper German Championships 125cc. That same year he finished in 10th spot in the European Supercross Championships held in Leipzig. The year after he tried his luck in World-Championship racing with mixed results as well as the famous Inter-DM. He won the Regional Championships in Saxony-Anhalt 250cc Class between 2004 and 2006 and he finished the 2007 Europe-Asia Cup in 4th overall. With this reputation Christoph Schade should be found up front.
We wanted to introduce Björn Bierbrauer to you, who races for the Bodo Schmidt Team in Germany, this morning we had to learn that Björn broke his leg and thus unable to partake in this years Inter-Series to be held on 3rd and 10th of November. All the best, Björn!
