Race Across Germany 2018



Race Across Germany 2018 is done and dusted…..and done in style.

38 hours, 37 minutes for the 1,110km Ultra Cycling race, a great win and the 2nd fastest time in the 19-year history of the race.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The main motivating factor for this years race was the fact that I abandoned the race in 2017 after 800km, so the priority was to finish, but getting the best possible result was right up there as well.

I was seeded 3rd off the starting ramp with each participant setting off at 2-minute intervals. The tactic was to get as far as possible along the first 490km without getting caught by anyone. This section of the race is very flat and suited the bigger more powerful riders.

With the exception of a puncture after 270km, the first section went exactly to plan. I overtook the first 2 riders very quickly and made no mistakes navigating the route. The first 180km were covered in 5 hours, 15 minutes. 404km were covered in the first 12 hours. It was at about this point that Thorsten Weber caught me. A big powerful rider, he passed me like a steam train!

We planned on our bike change from the TT bike to the road bike, just as Thorsten Weber caught us, as all the climbs were still ahead of us. The bike change is like getting a brand new body to ride the bike. You use different muscles to drive the pedals. We didn’t panic about Thorsten as we had expected him to pass us earlier and we figured the climbs would pose a problem for him. The gap to Thorsten would stretch to 20 minutes very quickly (+ another 8 minutes as he started 4 places behind Mick).

Once we hit the climbs the gap would come down rapidly. I passed Thorsten at around the 550km mark, a quick exchange of pleasantries and then it was time to twist the screw. The gap would go out to almost 20 minutes in my favour before we got to Heringen at 618km. We scheduled a stop here. While we were sitting down in the middle of the village, Thorsten would pass us again. Last year I would have jumped straight on the bike and chase him down. This time, “Let him go” was my immediate reaction as I saw him pass.

The breaks are so important and different things work for different cyclists. I had a main break of 25 minutes without having a sleep. I had 3 other breaks of 8-10 minutes with 5 minutes sleep during those stops. At no point during the race did I feel like the eyes were closing. All of the breaks except the last one at approximately 800km were planned…more on that later.

It would not be long before Thorsten would stop for his main break in the comfort of his motor home and his crew was servicing his bike. The mood was good. I was determined that this was the last time I’d be seeing Thorsten during the race and said as much to the crew. The worst climbs were yet to come. I almost wanted more climbs as every time the race went upwards, I would gain a lot of time on the other front-runners. However, I didn’t bargain on Norbert Vohn.

From 680km to the 780km mark there is a lot of downhill. It was inevitable that I would lose some time here to Thorsten, but Norbert Vohn was making a charge and the gap was closing. It was “tactic time”. Norbert had started ahead of me, 2nd off the starting ramp, so I had a 2-minute buffer. At this point, it wasn’t a case of, would he catch me, it was a case of when. The gaps were 8km & 10km to Norbert and Thorsten. So, we decided to have a power nap. 5 minutes of absolute silence at the side of the road. This was the best decision of the race for me.

I was completely recharged as Norbert approached from behind. I had a long discussion about this with the crew. The worst case scenario was that he would be a stronger rider, he would pass me and win the race. There’s nothing you can do about that. I decided to slow down and let Norbert catch up. If I was to ride 200 meters in front, I would feel the constant pressure of the inevitable. The moment he caught me I felt a relief. We had a great chat, family, work, cycling and lots of random stuff, the guy is an absolute gentleman. I became immediately relaxed. It was like doing a road bike tour in Lanzarote and I forgot about tiredness and fatigue. I was re-energised.

We still couldn’t completely relax with Thorsten Weber on our tails. With 220km to go, the gap was at 8-10km back to Thorsten. This gap would remain steady. I was starting to note that Norbert was suffering on the climbs. With 150km to go, the race dynamic was more like a normal road race than an Ultra cycling race. All it would take was one hard attack to win the race.

I had studied the route book in so much detail over the last few weeks. I’d looked at all the strava segments. Where are the climbs, how long, what’s the gradient and if I’m going well, how hard should I be going? All of these climbs were noted in the route book for the navigation crew.

There is a long steady climb before getting to Moorenweis, 90km from the finish. The gap back to Thorsten Weber had increased to almost 15km. Norbert was feeling it. I had notes in the route book at Moorenweis, “Go Go Go, flat & downhill, Come on” the same in Turkenfeld, “Come on Come on Drive on, Lots of Downhill”. I was about 5km from Moorenweis, it was time to attack this climb, time to go and time to make it count.

I distanced Norbert instantly. I continued to work hard, only 80km to go. The gap would reduce slightly, but I knew the guys had to be working hard to close it so I was quite relaxed in the knowledge that if they got a little closer, there was more in the tank.  However, I did question myself a little after going over the top in Moorenweis. Had I attacked too early? I was telling myself to drive on, keep moving forward, don’t let him catch you, don’t let him even catch sight of you. The more of a gap I could put in now, the harder it would be for the other guys to have enough time to catch me.

I got to really enjoy the last section to Garmisch Partenkerchen with the crew. They were amazing the whole way through. They pressed all the right buttons. Every time I needed encouragement or a shot of reality, they knew what to say. These guys know me better than I know myself!

Knowledge is a great thing and as a team, we learned more last year from not finishing. Everything was reviewed in minute detail. Every aspect of the race was improved upon this year.

Dieter Gopfert, the race director was at the finish to greet me along with the 4 man and 2 man teams who finished earlier. There is an amazing sense of achievement. It also qualifies me for Race Across America. Pleasantly happy sums up my mood at the finish, just really really happy.

Finally, a big thank you for all the support guys. I’ll get around to all of you in person hopefully sooner rather than later to say as much, it means a lot!

What’s next?

It’s back to the day job for now, bike tours in Lanzarote with Bueno Bike Lanzarote.

When is the next race?

I’d love to say, yes, the next race is ….. but the reality is I need sponsors to come on board. I have a wonderful circle of friends who put a lot of money in the pot for this race and I will be forever grateful for their generosity.

What we do know is that we can be competitive and take on the very best ultra cyclists in the world!

What type of support do you need?

Every event costs between €4,000 and up to €50,000 in the case of Race Across America. I need sponsors who can cover costs or provide us with product-in-kind for any one or more of the following;

  • race entry
  • flights
  • accommodation
  • food
  • bikes
  • navigation and communication equipment
  • clothing
  • vehicle hire and fuel

If you know of any companies who would make a “good fit” with what we are trying to achieve, please put them in contact with us, we would be more than happy to sit down and have a chat about it.

1st Review of the NEW Ironman Lanzarote Bike course.

The NEW IM Lanzarote course has finally been revealed in the last 24 hours and we love it!

While the course has been a well-kept secret, our sources were able to reveal the course to us in March and we took the opportunity to ride the course, recently.

The are lots of questions to be asked and to be answered and here’s our take on the new course.

It’s a great IM course, arguably better than previous courses. While there is a similar amount of elevation, the course lends itself better to a higher number of participants making the time cuts.

The first main difference is where the course went from the El Toro roundabout to Uga via Puerto Calero. It now goes up behind the El Toro restaurant towards Tias, through Conil and onto the LZ 30, turning left to go down through La Geria to Uga (Camel Roundabout).
The course rejoins the old course for a lap of El Golfo and proceeds up through Timanfaya and the National Park to Mancha Blanca. This is where the new course changes again.

The loop that takes in Tiagua, back to Tinajo, down to La Santa, Soo and Famara has been completely omitted.
Turn right in Mancha Blanca to ride the “planet of the apes” road LZ-56 all the way to the LZ-30. Turn left onto the LZ-30 going all the way to Teguise, back on the old course again and all the way to Mirador del Rio.

The course continues back through Mala and Guatiza to the next (most welcome) change. Tahiche and the horrible Nazaret LZ-408 have been omitted. Instead, you turn right onto the LZ-404 for Teseguite and Teguise.

As you leave Teguise on the LZ-30, you will turn for Famara on the LZ-402. Here the route designers have added what we think is the “pièce de résistance”!

The new “down and back” to Famara on the LZ-402 is a fabulous addition, Las Laderas to be precise. Riders will have almost 140km in the legs. On paper, it’s a nice downhill to Famara, in reality, and assuming the wind blows North Easterly, this is going to snap a lot of legs. The draggy climb back up is only slightly softened by the very fact you will most lightly have a tailwind. The fact that any participants within 25-30 minutes of each other are likely to see each other on this section spices things up a little more.

Get back up to the roundabout and travel back down the LZ-30 to where the beginning of the course came out from the LZ-501 to the El Toro roundabout via Conil and the “donkey track”.

The highlights, without doubt, are the new additions. The route from El Toro to the LZ-30 via the “donkey track” and Conil is a climbers paradise. 295m altitude in Conil and only just over 15km in to the course. A few over-eager riders are going to blow up here. Also, the “down and back” to Famara. This will make or break riders, mental strength will play a big part for the athletes!

Overall, it’s a better-designed route and still as testing as the old course. Visually it’s even more amazing and the road surface is much better than before.

Do we expect a course record? Well, it’s a new course so there will be a record  but we expect the time to be marginally quicker on the new course.

Bargaining Chip #2 on the way next week

The “Race Across Germany 2017” experience

On Friday morning at 8.38am, Mick took to the roads of Germany for the Race Across Germany 2017. It was never going to be easy, with 1,100km of road and 7,600 metres of climbing. Here, he gives you an insight into the entire experience.

There’s so much to say about Race Across Germany and for fear you might not read down to the end, I’ve got a few people to thank first!

Peter Ciacca of Renner Bikes & Lanzarote Cycling and part of the support crew. This guy is the ultimate gentleman. He supplied bikes, parts, wheels, he even put his hand in his pocket (when he need not have done so) for all kinds of things. So much of what was achieved is down to this man.

Stevie Turvey, Marty McLoughlin and Chris Horschke – the support crew. “The whole is greater than the sum of their parts”, quote by Aristotle. Remember, these guys were doing this for the first time as well.  They out performed some of the most experienced support crews in the race. This was a massive under taking and they rode the steep learning curve as though it were flat!

From L to R; Peter, Stevie, Mick, Chris, Marty

There are lots more people to thank, Jim Breen, Jim Rees, Luis Fleep, Lars & Charlotte and all of my close friends here in Lanzarote and of course all around the world for all your support throughout.

While we weren’t the only novices rocking up to the event, the level of experience and professionalism at the disposal of some of the teams was immediately apparent. Custom vehicles, big sponsors, all kinds of gadgets and state of the art bikes.

Weather conditions at the start were poor, heavy mist to light rain. Participants were starting at 2 minute intervals. I knew once I rolled off the ramp, a warm-up for the first few kilometres would be the last thing on my mind and that I would want to drive on, so I did a few very light laps of the start area. All the time I was keeping an eye out for my slot. I timed it perfectly, rolling up to the ramp with 15 seconds to my start time. Little did I know of the panic at the ramp with a minute to go to my start time.

You get counted down, photographed and waved off. There you go. The race has started. Immediately, my thighs felt like 2 dead cavity blocks and I’m thinking I need an energy gel already! The first 10 minutes were scary and frustrating. “How am I going to finish this race if my legs are suffering already”? The 1st two sets of traffic lights were red. I felt as though it would be just my luck if the next starter rocked up beside me…..and then I took a wrong turn, another minute in the bin!

30 minutes in and I started to settle. I was riding a Merida Warp TT bike, supplied by Renner Bikes. The rain was expected to continue for the next 12 hours, “just like Ireland” I smiled to myself…..positive mental energy!

After an hour, I overtook about 5 riders over a period of 10 minutes. I know I wouldn’t like to be over taken, so I tried to be genuinely friendly and offered encouragement to some to the riders. The support van for the rider who started 2 minutes behind me kept overtaking me, so I felt as though he wasn’t far behind. Every time they passed, it played with my head. Whether you know or feel that you are going well, it’s hard to say. Over taking riders kind of spoils you and you expect to continue overtaking riders.

Another 2 hours and I caught another number of riders. I eased up as I approached from behind, trying to assess who looked more comfortable. It didn’t take long to decide that the pace was too slow for me and I continued on past. It wasn’t long before our inexperience raised it’s short comings.

Over 100km into the race and our progress took a massive dent. We made a series of wrong turns. Each one cost almost a minute. We had to turn back to get on the correct route. 1 or 2 is not bad but I daren’t tell you how many. It’s particularly frustrating when you pass a rider, not once, not twice but 3 times because of school boy errors. It’s hard to read the GPS with the rain fall.

Things settled again with the occasional mistake but catching riders became more of a rarity. It was immediately apparent that the top guys in this race were in front of me on the road. None of the riders who started after me were making inroads on me. Psychologically, it helps that you know if you catch the guys out front on the road, you are ahead in the race.

After about 6 hours I made one of the catches I had been hoping for, Markus Brandl, winner of Race Across Germany (East to West 760km race) a few weeks previously. Markus was without doubt one of the favourites. Little did I know, he had his own issues, having slipped on the super wet splippery surface twice but lucky to escape unscathed. I sat behind him for 5km. I wanted to see how he was physically. You can never tell mentally. The pace felt a little slow but I was trusting that this guy knew what he was doing and getting his pace right, so I was happy to be in a relaxed state. Mentally and physically I was in a great place, but unfortunately I don’t have the patience. I rode by him effortlessly and into the horizon almost, BUT things went horribly wrong in the next hour.

My GPS froze at a crucial moment. I should have turned right coming into this little town. Confusion reigned. The support crew GPS froze. We elected for me to cycle slowly in a straight line, while the crew waited at the junction to see where Brandl would go. I had a bad feeling. The crew caught up to me. “Turn around, Brandl went right”. Things would go from bad to worse over the next half hour. We were without GPS. There was a series of lefts and rights. There was no point in continuing without knowing we were taking the correct route. We just sat there waiting for the next rider. I was starting to shake with the cold. All 3 GPS’ were being reset. The waiting was like watching paint dry. Eventually a rider passed and I tagged along. It would be 45km before I would see Brandl again.

We sorted out the GPS issues shortly afterwards and then I put the head down. I was still frustrated, but the quick progress was a massive mental lift. I eventually caught the coat tails of Brandl and we had another rider for company, Kosma Szafraniak, from Poland. We spread ourselves across the road, careful not to draft off each other. The atmosphere was very relaxed between the riders. It made you forget the effort you were making. Only Jochen Bohringer and Martin Temmen lay ahead.

We went through a period where there was very little communication between the riders and the vehicles, although one rider seemed resigned to the fact that Martin Temmen was already too far ahead to be caught. I now wish I never heard him say it! I panicked! I was so comfortable, cycling well below threshold.

The chasing group swelled to 4 when we caught Bohringer. He was so comfortable, we managed a chat for a few minutes. He was really enjoying himself. Like me, this was his first venture into ultra racing…top guy!

While I was very relaxed, it hadn’t been lost on me that Martin Temmen supposedly had this unassailable lead. Had I felt a bit lethargic, I’d have been happy to sit where I was. The internet was hard to connect to in some areas for the support crew and therefore it was difficult to see the time gaps, but we were starting to eat into his lead….slowly, only we didn’t realise it.

At over 10 hours, Brandl and I would break away from the other riders. Now the race was starting to become a bit more serious. Physically and mentally I was in a very good place. It was difficult to assess Brandl. We were happy in each others company but we didn’t converse much, conserving as much energy as possible. Occasionally, the support crew would pull up along side me for a chat and assess the situation for me. Nutrition was going well, stomach felt good. I had no neck pain and my legs felt fresher than they had felt at the start.

The race organisers had pulled up beside us to say Temmen was well ahead. Hind sight is a great thing, I wish I never heard that resigned tone. I was going well, but I was thinking, “I’m losing valuable time to Temmen”. Over the next 2 hours, the gap to Temmen closed to about 15km. The race was on! And then I made what may have been an error on my part.

At 8.30pm, I attacked Brandl effortlessly on a slight drag. It seemed so easy. The organisers passed information that the lead was getting very close. Temmen had started 22 minutes ahead of me, so I knew if I could be within less than 10km, we would be neck and neck.

Attacking Brandl to go after Temmen. I should have kept my powder dry for a while longer.

Slowly, slowly, the gap closed. 15, 14, 13, back up to 14, down to 11. Brandl was only 3km back from me and for a brief moment I wondered if I should have just wheeled along with him instead of making a big effort that only yielded a few minutes in such a long race. This was the only moment in the race itself that I questioned my decision making. “It was done now, so let’s just get on with it”.

The first half of the race is fairly flat, but the 3rd quarter is really challenging. Climbs lasting over 10km. Hairpin after hairpin in the pitch dark for 5 kms, more climbs and into a head wind for good measure. I descended almost with reckless abandon. The support crew couldn’t keep up on the descents or through the silent villages. I hoped and trusted there wasn’t any gravel on the corners.

The race was still in the balance at daylight. The gap decreased further, 10, 9, 8, 7. Briefly, I was the virtual leader on the road. I was excited and feeling good. I almost expected to see Temmen in front of me anytime soon…….and then things took a turn. The gap increased. Temmen is a good rider and he wasn’t going to give up too easily. I got a little frustrated, maybe it was a lack of experience. When I found it difficult to click out my foot for a stop, I got angry with it and I strained the side of my knee slightly to get it out, I thought nothing of it.

I stopped briefly for a complete kit change. It was some sight.  A bike rider with just bike shoes on, I hope you never see it 🙂

The gap went back up to 17km. It’s a bit disheartening when you get this kind of info, but when you’ve got a guy like Chris Horschke working on the mental side of your game, it wasn’t long before he had me sorted mentally and the gap started to drop again. The gap hovered between 13 & 15km for the next 3 hours. My knee started to ache, but I didn’t worry. “This is normal” I said, “After 700km, this is normal”. But the pain got progressively worse. I was having to stand on the pedals on the climbs. It was really hurting!

I needed to stop and assess the knee. The support crew were brilliant. They all had their own things to do. Check the bike. Fill my pockets with food. A drink bottle on the bike. Clothes changes. More food. The gap was about 15km and I was determined to close it and exert some pressure. There was no reason to think otherwise. Yes, the knee was worse, but I was holding the gap. This would be my last hurrah, but I didn’t know it.

I got back on the bike like a bat out of hell. The crew had given me the best pep talk you can imagine. The roads were smooth, and whilst into a head wind and slightly undulating, I had a good position on the bike.  I was really moving. The gap started to drop, and drop quickly. I knew I was going hard. It felt like someone had a dagger in my leg but I had it in my head that if I could suffer for 2-3 hours, catching Temmen was a possibility. The gap was down to 13, “anything under 10 and I was there or there abouts as virtual leader”……and then I rode onto 2 short ramps of about 500 metres in length. I sat up from the aero bars. Then I had to stand up to alleviate some of the pain. I was pedalling squares. I spoke with the support crew about how I was feeling. When you need infectious encouragement, these guys are where it’s at!

The pain became unbearable. I decided to pull over, thinking a short break would alleviate the pain. That thought didn’t last long. I weighed up the situation, the future, my cycling career. “The future is more important, it’s not like I’m dropping out because I’m doing badly or looking for excuses”. After a lengthy discussion with the crew, I lay on the bed in the support van, teary eyed. It can’t be helped when you really want something, when you feel like you don’t want to let people down! They sent the text of my abandon to the organisers and waited for a reply. We were not long waiting for a reply……… “Oh.shit….U lead”!

Immediately, I got back up to ride the bike, “I’m not giving up”! Another text was sent to the organisers to say as much, but 10 seconds was all it took to realise I wasn’t going any further, the pain was too much. I considered cycling one legged! For 300km? I doubt it’s ever been done. It didn’t take long for common sense to prevail.

Spare a moment for the crew at this point. What do you say to a guy that’s close on heartbroken and feels like he has let everybody down? The crew managed the situation perfectly. Yes, I was teary eyed, even worse when I read all the messages of support on the Facebook page, but the crew were quick to point out all the positives that would come from this experience.

Welcoming Martin Temmen at the finish with race organiser Dieter Göpfert

We made our way to the finish in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the support van to welcome Martin Temmen at the finish line. What a performance by Martin, finishing in the 2nd fastest time since the race began. Well done Martin, you thoroughly deserved your win!

So what did I take from the experience of Race Across Germany?

Off to Race Across Germany – Closed from Tuesday 27th June – Friday 7th July

“If he’s not on a day off, he’s on his bike”…..that’s Mick for you.

He will be taking part in the Race Across Germany on Friday 30th June.

We know he is really looking forward to it, but we’re fairly sure his “oil light will be flashing” at some point during the 1,100km race. There is 7,500 metres of climbing thrown in for good measure…, it will be a sufferfest of sorts by any stretch of the imagination.

Can we also take this opportunity to extend a massive thank you to everybody who has extended their best wishes.

To keep up to date with his progress, here is the tracker, Mick is No.19 on the start list.
