annually in kerpen: clattering and dust, so that, with visual guidance, it’s a fast route from the autobahn exit. a stretch of a farmer’s land is marked out with bales of hay – and we’re off. the fastest rider is ascertained in preliminary heat and final round, with one condition: it has to be a motorbike, on two wheels. bits can be built on, replaced and tinkered with even during the race. wonderful fun!
