Flèche Allemagne 2010 Team 34 "Die Kurbelquäler"

Flèche Allemagne, organisiert von Audax Randonneurs Allemagne, ist eine 24-Stunden Mannschaftssternfahrt mit dem gemeinsamen Ziel auf der Wartburg bei Eisenach. Flèche Allemagne findet in allen „geraden“ Jahren (2008, 2010, ... usw.) jeweils an Christi Himmelfahrt und dem darauf folgenden Freitag statt. Der Mannschaftsgedanke steht beim Flèche im Vordergrund. Eine Mannschaft besteht aus min. 3 und max. 5 Radlern, die alle in der vorgesehenen Zeit das Ziel erreichen sollen. 52 Mannschaften nahmen am 13.-14. Mai 2010 an der Sternfahrt teil. Manfred war Kapitän der Mannschaft "Die Kurbelquäler".

Flèche Allemagne, organized by Audax Randonneurs Allemagne, is a 24-hours team's star ride with different start places and with the concerted destination on castle Wartburg near Eisenach.
Flèche Allemagne takes place during all "straight" years (in 2008, 2010... etc.) in each case at Ascension Day and the next Friday. The team concept is the main thing. A team consists of min. 3 to max. 5 riders, who should reach the destination in the intended time together. 52 teams took part in the star ride at 13th-14th May 2010. Manfred was captain of the team "Die Kurbelquäler" ("The crank tormentors").

    Das Team "Die Kurbelquäler"
    I hope that the nightingales sang in unison and did everything for the team.
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Yes, thanks dear Olga!
      At night we have even once stopped cycling to listen to the songs of the nightingales!

        You want to say that this is an easy walk?
        Why are you riding at night?
        • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
          11 years 8 months ago
          No, dear Olga, it was no easy walk. It was a sporty challenge. But exactly this it should be!
          We rode at night because it was a 24-hour ride.
          We were too slow to ride 420 kms during one day without night! :-)))

            Couch live up to expectations?

              I have not used the couch in the star ride to Wartburg. The star ride is a team ride. On this occasion, it depends not on the success of the singles, but on the success of the team.
              The whole team must reach the destination in the given time. In the team it is useful to give mutually slipstream. This would not have been possible with the couch.

                OK!
                Bye! :-)

    Corinna vom Team "De Bummelzoch" ist glücklich!
    The brave woman!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      11 years 8 months ago
      Yes, dear Olga, I admire Corinna. I met Corinna for the first time in London.
      She took part in the 1.400 kms cycling-tour London-Edingburgh-London and finished successfully!

    Uuups, da fehlen ein paar Stücke Straße!
    It appears that on the well-known German roads too it is possible to see the such.

      The street was closed. But we were too sluggish to cycle the detour. Thus we have used the street in spite of roadblock.
      How you see, dear Olga, the street is well usable for cyclists!
      :-D

    Die Wartburg
    Excellent architecture!!!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      11 years 8 months ago
      The castle Wartburg has been renovated throughout its existence with many earlier parts being overbuilt by later constructions and additions.
      This Romanesque Palace is the oldest of the buildings.

        It is beauty without time)))

    Hurra - geschafft!
    Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Gerne wäre ich dabei gewesen. In Gedanken bin ich die Tour mitgeradelt.
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      11 years 8 months ago
      Danke Andreas, für den Glückwunsch.
      Such dir in Zukunft bessere Termine zum krank werden aus :-))
      • Andreas (Private)
        11 years 8 months ago
        Jawoll, Herr Kapitän.
  • Andreas (Private)

    Uuups, da fehlen ein paar Stücke Straße!
    So viel Gepäck hattet ihr doch gar nicht dabei, dass euch das hätte passieren können.

    Schild an Manfred's Fahrradrahmen
    "Manfred is captain of the team "Die Kurbelquäler" ("The crank tormentors")."

    Oh, yes! The other candidates can't be! :-))

      The captain is the contact to the organizer. The captain is responsible to the organizational regulation of all interests of the team members. He fixes the route and the control-points and tunes this with the organizer.
      A captain should dispose of experience in long distance cycling.
      So you are absolutly right, dear Olga: because I am the oldest one, it can be no one else :-D
