On Saturday the 19.07.14, Udo and I, started for the first time as a Pirate. At the Night on Bike in Radevormwald, a 14h race. We were quite excited how everything will do, because it was the first time for us, to ride in a team of 2. Udo did the job for to deal with the mountains and I, the most difficult part, the start.
The race started at 20:00o´clock right on the market place of Rade.
Now the race went better and we fought our way thru the night. It was a wonderful course and she lead over bitumen, forest paths and a very rooty trail, right thru the forest of Rade.
Besides a flat tyre, which I already remarked in the transition area, went everything fine for us. Sadly we just finished on the 21st place.
Michael and Udo
