Elmar Hopperdietzel (Elmar’s Trialpage / Elmar Fotodesign), a German trials personality who has had a web presence since 1999 and has been following all the competition news in his country since then, has shared with us a series of photos of the Elite 26" Final (Parts 1 & 2) and the Elite 20" Final (Parts 1 & 2).

Now he’s sent us a gallery of images from the Women’s Final, which saw Karin Moor return to form after a recent injury that had prevented her from competing in the second round of the World Cup in BiellaIl. She took the win in Melsungen to claim her third European title ahead of Spanish sisters Gemma and Mireia Abant.
