2nd podium finish this season

Last weekend the Baum team finished in their second race of the season again on the podium. At the 24h of Zandvoort both teams had a very strong pace.

1st in Class at 12h Monza

Arjan Fidder, Coen Telgenhof, Gerald Keijzer and finisher Tino Hazelhoff finished first in Class (4 riders per team) and 3rd overall behind two teams of eight riders each. This fantastic result is a great opening of the 2016 cycling season.

The other team with Andre Mulder, Daniel Casado, Patrick Geraerts and Paul Talens finished 7th in the Class of four riders and twelve overall out of 229 registrations. This is also a great achievement!

Launch of the 2016 team

With proud we launch the new race kit of the Baum Cycles endurance team, our own design and produced by Craft Sportswear. With these colors we are going into the battle on several European motorsport circuits like we did successfully last year.

The design is a blink towards the mythical colors from 24 hour racing with legendary winners when the finish flag dropped. With this design we move forward with our slogan “ride your own Race” and like Steve McQueen once said, “Racing is life, anything that happens before or after is just waiting”. This is also what our cycling team does, they life towards the next race with a lot of focus to race on one of the famous motorsport circuits in Europe.

This year our team will be on the starting grid of races at Monza (June 11-12), Zandvoort (June 18-19), Nordschleife (July 30-31), LeMans (August 20-21), Brands Hatch (September 10-11) and Misano (September 24-25).

The riders of our line-up of last year which stay are Arjan Fidder, Dirk Bellemakers, Gerald Keijzer, Leon van Bon, Patrick Geraerts en Tino Hazelhoff. For the 2016 season Coen Telgenhof and Martijn de Raad complete the line-up.

With great enthusiasm they look forward to a beautiful European program containing a variance of races like the “temple of speed” at Monza and the “Grüne Hölle”, also known as the Nordschleife. Large showers with hale on the flanks of the Eiffel surprised the racecars for the 24h race at the Nordschleife last weekend. No way you will have a smooth ride on this circuit for 24h in a row.
