Huge respect to Stefan “Fish” Vis. In case you’ve started to follow him through last week and his big competition against the alps (www.bike-transalp.de) we are sure you pay the same kind of respect as we do. 7 days, nearly 600 km and finally over 19,000 vertical meters with crazy rocky or muddy tracks to follow through a daily changing weather from sun to heavy rain – he made it all.
In case we understand the general result list the correct way Fish made #739 out of 1200 starters in total. Even if this is not in our interest because the original target was to survive, and not to classify so many MTB riders even behind.. wow. Fish was the only one using a unsuspended carbon fork, 34c tires and drop bars and from that point of view it is actually intangible. This was possibly the best test ride we could arrange for our HOOK bike, no strain can be stronger for bike and men than this transalp race. Watch out for more pictures, a videoclip and some more covering stuff soon!
