RAD RACE Battle in Münster

RDRC_Startnummer_200mm_AnsichtJust one week left until the 7th and last RAD RACE for this season takes off. And what better occasion could there be than hosting it in the RAD RACE / AURORA hometown Münster and in combination with the Münsterland Giro. The RAD RACE Battle will take place on 3rd of October on the historical Prinzipalmarkt in Münster, the Prinzipalmarkt is one of the main streets in Münsters city centre and covered with historical pavé. The RAD RACE Battle is a rider against rider sprint battle on a straight 160 m pavé track!
This is going to be really interesting and worth a visit.
Make sure to visit Münster next week, have a great day of cycling and celebrate the 7th RAD RACE with us! Check out the facebook event for more information.
I hope to see you there.

1st Stage: Hamburg – Büsum

Raining all dayFinally the day was there, after two month of planning, many things to keep in mind and a lot work – 16 people where meeting for breakfast in the heart of Hamburg.
The excitement was visible in every face and everyone just wanted to start our journey.
After setting up all the bikes, packing the van for the first time and getting ready for the first stage – it also started to rain.

Bike Rack
The first approx. 130 km where really wet and nothing you’d expect from a vacation trip. But the team battled it out with the elements. Sadly I had to resign the first stage after approx 75-80 km, being in the lead for the first kilometers and with a hurting knee, I decided not to exaggerate. There are more stages and kilometers to come. But the route compensated for everything.

As said above, I rode just 80 km of the 120 km of this first stage!
We had some wet cobble stones, empty field roads with great pavement, sheeps and in the end the north sea, the dykes and also the sun bid welcome to use while we arrived at our first camping site.
In less than 15 minutes our eight Heimplanet tents where set up and our home for this night was prepared. A shower, the bikes where cleaned, som warm cloth and we made our last stop for this day and visited a weird italian pizzeria to get some food.

Let’s see what the 2nd stage from Büsum to Skaerbek has to offer. The weather forecast looks pretty good so far….

Tour de Skandinavia 2014
It’s time to announce something really big!
Together with Ingo, founder of the Rad Race, I worked the last two month to organize a very special journey. Both of us where dreaming of a tour like this for long and it was time to finally realize it.


We will ride from Hamburg to Oslo in 9 days and sleep in our Heimplanet tents between every stage.
Our crew consists of sixteen people and thirdteen of them will ride the approx. 1200km on their road bike or track bike. The rest of our crew will follow in our tour van and take care of us and the equipment. We will also try to document the tour as good as possible with our cameras and hope to get back with some nice visuals for you.

This is going to be a really interesting experience, a challenge for everyone of us and a beautiful journey with stunning landscapes. Riding with the nature and see what it has to offer, no matter if it’s rain, wind or sunshine. On 1st of September we start the tour in Hamburg, will ride our way on the west coast of denmark and arrive in Frederikshavn, there we cross over the Kattegat with a ferry and reach Göteborg. The tour continues on the west coast of Sweden, we cross the Oslofjord and finish right in the heart of Oslo.
