24h of Nordschleife 2015 - 3rd place

At the famous Nordschleife circuit we had a fantastic race. Over 800 teams were on the starting grid and we finished 25th overall and 3rd in our class. With Arjan, Erik, Matthias and Patrick we had a team of riders with more or less the same quality and that helped us a lot.

It was a hard race due to very bad weather conditions on the 26 kilometer long track with 520 height meters each lap. The field contained world tour riders like Knees and Kluge and Continental teams as well. Nevertheless we stayed in the front of the field, every lap we did the 6 kilometer climb. Downhill we reached a speed between 90 and 100 kilometers, in the dark with only lighting on your bike this is a very cool challenge.
