This year as well the Rad Am Ring will take place in Germany. It is a cycling race that owes its uniqueness to the fact that, in addition to take place inside a circuit designated to car races, the main event is represented by the 24-hours road-cycling race.
Speaking about uniqueness, we cannot miss the chance either! Last year we were ready to introduce in advance the best bike fitting system in the world, but, this year, cyclists can choose to ride with us, find their ideal fitting so that nothing will ever stop them! Because, independently from the type of race, comfort and performances should go at the same pace!
The star of the race will be, for one more time, the Nürburgring , one of the most famous German circuit. It is known because not only it hosts important car races (including Formula One) every year, but also because it is the most dangerous circuit in the world, with the highest percentage of car accidents.
The original layout was built on the streets opened to public and dedicated to sport events, at that time provided with a security system in proportion to the maximum speed that cars could reach (100 miles per hour).
However, contributing the quickness of the technological progress, the security of the circuit became obsolete because it cannot guarantee the safety of the drivers anymore: since 30’s, indeed, race cars could reach a speed of 160 miles per hour.
In addition, on border track and dangerously near to the course where races took place, trees and shrubs grew, inspiring the nickname the Formula One champion Jackie Stewart gave to the circuit after his victory in 1968: “the green hell”.
From July 27 to 29, Nürburgring will accommodate all the people who want to test their limits breathing the competitive and typical Formula One atmosphere in one of the unique bicycle races in the world.
