2017 Rad am Ring

July 28

Event Summary

20 Cyclists!

Team PHenomenal Hope US and Team PHenomenal Hope Germany are teaming up this year to showcase 20 cyclists at the 2017 Rad am Ring!

Rad am Ring

For more than 10 years the 24-hour bicycle race has been an unequalled experience. The atmosphere of the Formula One arena and the challenges of the legendary Nordschleife render the around-the-clock race unique in the world.

During the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring everyone will find their very personal challenge. Individual riders as well as teams of 2, 4 and 8 will compete in the correspondent classifications. Both extreme sport athletes and reasonably trained amateur athletes will equally get their money’s worth.

The “Rad am Ring” version of a lap includes the Grand Prix circuit and the Nordschleife and is some 26 km long. Apart from just under 80 turns it also offers more than 500 metres of difference in altitude. As expected, the tarmac of the race track is perfect and provides a decent grip, especially in the twisting passages downhill. In the “Fuchsröhre” up to 100 km/h have been measured. But this is by no means mandatory. What cannot be avoided – on the contrary – is the ascent to the section “Hohe Acht”, with a temporary gradient of up to 17 %. Here at the latest also racing cyclists will understand the sobriquet “Green Hell” that was given to the Nürburgring by Formula One legend Jackie Stewart in the 70s.
