RAD RACE x AURORA Tour de Skandinavia – Day 2
2nd stage – 02.09.14
Büsum – Skaeberg / 151KM
And here comes the sun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a day!!!! We started the day early. Not because we wanted to but nobody could really sleep. Everyone was so pumped up to ride to Denmark... So when the sun was rising Gerri was already filming it because it was just too nice to stay in our tents and the rest woke up wayyyy too early. A super quick breaki with some very bad coffee later everyone was already getting their bikes ready because we wanted to hit the road so bad. So we did and it was Ingo’s time to get behind the steering wheel of our tour van.
Day 2 we decided our mechanic Luke should also get the chance to get on the bike but unfortunately a wasp hit him in the face so the ride was already over for him after 15K... He took some pain killers and we hope he’s gonna stay like this forever.
Well we seized the time to get Luke on his feet again and rode this amazing "Eidersperrwerk"... Just imagine a Skate Park, just for bikes. Made to love.
The rest of the trip was just so beautiful. Well except for 4 (!) flat tires. But well, fuck it. The sun was shining and we shot a lotta camera shit.
Etienne and Gerri are sharing the day so everyone can ride half of it. And to be honest. They kick ass so bad. Etienne is not really a cycler but still he managed to ride 50K yesterday and 70K today. Gerri was never on a road bike and also hit the road for 80K. And he wasn't really capable of racing with us at full speed so Danny and Paul just pushed him as long as he needed the help.
Gunja called it quits after 70K or so and everyone else was super tired but happy to make it to Denmark. And the average speed for the trip was still not too bad and around 29.
The thing is we don’t really want to race the tour, we wanna enjoy the nature, spend time with the best of friends and just kill it with everyone in the group. And we made it.
We left Germany in the afternoon and for some reason a few meters behind the border after we hit Denmark everything looked even prettier. At least it seemed that way. The trees and the birds and the fields just looked different. Well maybe the grass is just always greener on the other side.
After 151K we all arrived in Skaeberg safe & sound...
We really needed some food though (since luckily we forgot to take a box of nutrition food in Hamburg we're kind of short of supply). Well at least Paul needed some noodles.
Stay Rad and we’re happy to read your comments!
