triathlon-Awards "Newcomer of the year" 2018
Frederic has already been at home in the competitive structures of triathlon since 2011. His last year as a junior Frederic finished as German Champion and a qualification for the World Championships. In 2018, he proved that he is one of Germany's great triathlon talents: four middle distance races with four podium finishes and for the first time with a professional license.
In his first year in the jersey of the Erdinger Perspektivteam and on a CUBE bike he took six podium finishes at Challenge Family and Ironman 70.3 races. Frederic continued to build on this success the following year with three Challenge Family wins – including the title of ETU European Middle Distance Champion. He rounded off a great 2022 season in style with a fifth-place finish at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship and established himself as a strong contender in the elite ranks.
