another 24 hours on mountainbikes.. just..

with one comment

this time it’s been a bit different.. the track was a little shorter than usual, to be exact just around 850 meters, in return it got quite some turns (mostly 180s even), and well.. it’s been indoors.. it’s said to have been a world premiere – well quite likely there weren’t many people before having such a crazy idea.. 8) around 160 participants (as usual most in teams), were fighting for every meter on what proved to be a more selective track in the exhibition hall of freistadt (upper austria), than many have thought at first.. and it seemed that even the more sceptic starters found that it was fun and something different in the end..

it’s also been a first for us – sportograf.com – as it’s been the first 24h-race covered by one single photographer alone, namely me.. :) it really wasn’t easy, as it was a lot different than outdoors races, teams not changing as often and the track being that short, but i think i managed to provide our usual standards.. and of course there was a lot to learn again..

  1. 24-hour race? that’s more like a triathlon for me. :)
