This month we asked you on our social media channels if you had any questions for Pfeiffer Georgi, who recently won the white jersey for us at the Simac Ladies Tour. After returning home from the race, Pfeiffer sat down to answer our favourites!
Q: Did you enjoy the wet/muddy stage in Limburg last week? You looked really strong!
A: I really enjoyed the wet, muddy stage in Limburg as it’s actually one of my favourite weather conditions to race in and it was also all on “home” roads when I stay at the Keep Challenging Center in Sittard during the season. This meant I knew the course really well in my head and places where I could attack during the race. I’m also used to training in the rain a lot so am not bothered by it and quite like the dramatic feeling of heavy rain or a storm during a race!
Q: What’s your nickname? It’s hard to pronounce “ALLEZ PFEIFFER!
A: No sorry, the only nickname I sometimes get called is Pfeif!
Q: What are your goals for the future?
A: The biggest goal in my career would be becoming world champion on the road and I would also like to win a classic such as Flanders or Paris Roubaix as I think these races can suit me in the future. For the short term I want to keep on developing as a rider and start to race for the win when I have an opportunity with the team.
Q: What’s your favourite race and why?
A: I think my favourite race I’ve done so far is Tour de Yorkshire as I really like the type of roads with short, punchy climbs. Also the crowds in Yorkshire are always pretty special which gives me something extra when I start suffering.
Q: Best moment of your career so far?
A: I had some nice results as a junior and think the best moment was winning the Junior Gent Wevelgem and being able to stand on the podium with the winners from all of the categories. I think since I’ve joined the elites the best moment of my career would be the past week in Simac Ladies Tour as it’s where I feel I’ve made a step up and been able to be an active part of the race. Finishing sixth on GC in a World Tour race was a lot more than I was expecting heading into it, especially being surrounded by some pretty big names!
