STARTING GRID STAGE 3
Story of the day
Tour de Friends is about much more than just results. It's about a great time with your friends! Laughing together, fighting together, having a great adventure together. We asked you to tell us your story of the day. Each day the best story wins 3 Deutsche Bahn Interrail tickets.
Our Story of the day goes to TEAM RoadBIKE @patricia.angermann & @appt2008
How awesome is that? Yesterday she was in the hospital and today she passed her first alpine pass. Great Job, Patricia Angermann! And @appt2008, you fool: If you wouldn’t mess up the marriage proposal on the top of the pass, the #storyoftheday would be 100%, not just 99.
Well, for us this is 100% the story of the day. Yesterday Patricia had really bad pain and went with an ambulance to the hospital. Today she finished stage 2 like no other. Highs and lows… a story of RAD RACE „Tour de Friends“

Picture of the day
We’re pretty sure you’ve seen them. The fixed gear riders. 5 of them from team Le Cog and 3 from team Kesseln.cc.
For them it’s not just hard to cycle uphill, but also to cycle downhill. Because they #cantstop.
Every other cyclist can stop pedalling and relax their legs. The fixed gear boys need additional power to slow down.
@jacominasenkel captured this moment of fixed gear descending. Congrats to your new OAKLEY JAWBREAKER.
STRAVA King of the Mountain
Okay, now we are talking about the fastest climbers. Every day we created one STRAVA x RAD RACE "Tour de Friends" KOM for you. Every day a different distance, a different elevation and at a different time of the stage. Today the challenge was sponsored by CANYON BICYCLES. Congrats Paul Voss // Team CLifbar and Luisa Keller // Tritime Women Team, you both won a brand new Canyon Cycling Kit!
