For the first time medals in the mixed team relay were awarded at the European Championships. In the Dutch Alkmaar Justin Wolf won the silver medal with the german national team.

With a 5th place in the German Individual Time Trials at the end of June, Justin Wolf missed the podium by 24 seconds and was beaten only by riders from World Tour Teams.

Due to his results, he was nominated by the German Cycling Federation for the European Championships. In addition to the time trial in the mixed team relay, he is currently also set for the road race next Sunday to support Pascal Ackermann in his title ambitions.

For the first time was a team time trial in the mixed relay. A team of three women and then three men each had to complete a time trial. The German team, consisting of Mieke Kroeger (Virtu), Lisa Brennauer (WNT rotor), Lisa Klein (Canyon SRAM), Marco Mathis (Cofidis), Jasha Sutterlin (Movistar) and Justin Wolf (BIKE AID) had to be 14 seconds just beaten by the Dutch team arround Bauke Mollema. Third place was followed by Italy, which, like the Netherlands, set up only riders from the World Tour.
