The beginning of my cyclo-cross season this year was the Klaus Störtebecker Memorial Cup of the

While we had a bright sunny autumn sky, I went on Saturday afternoon to run the 10,4km course, right thru the Urban Park into the Wurm valley. It was a round course and really wonderful, even the constant up and down was soft and ambitious.

If someone told me a year ago, that I just would run a marathon for fun, I would have keelhaul himself. But the 10th Hella-Marathon-Night should be a marathon for fun. Just to enjoy it, after the worse weather conditions of last time. Yes, some of you will say, that´s not possible..

Cross_Duathlon in Hamburg
Actually I registered myself for the cross duathlon in Hamburg-Harburg, but with only 3times running with each time only 30minutes was my training not the best for it. Mighty mouse Jule already arrived on Friday and wanted to ride a little bit with Andre Zamponi on Saturday until Andre remarked that Saturday was his birthday and his grand parent wanted to visit him that day. So, I said the mighty mouse, that I would ride with her.

On a marathon course in Neustadt a.d.W. or the weekend of the crashes
This year is not a good year for riding marathon races. First I had to cancel the race in Bad Wildbach, than I had a crash on anexercise unit on Friday before the race. Now my new skin is made of cuts and bruises.
But as you all know, Pirates don´t know any pain and so...cancelling the race was no option.

Finally it was time again for some holidays at Lake Garda. Of course it wasn´t just a holiday for relaxing,it was even time for some biking, and so I rented a 29MTB for two days. A Raven29R was my choice at the FOCUS-Testcenter. I always wanted to ride a 29MTB, I have to say it, it was worth it...
On the firstday, I took a trip into the back country of Garda.  I used the service of TrackSpace-Software to find me a trip of about 55km and 1700m of altitude.

The hill of Brunsberg is with ist 129m one of the largest hills of northern Germany in the moorland. And the Brunsberg run is a 11,5km cross-race, with about 2km to run on bitumen, and the rest is really ambitious, because you have to run over stones, sticks, and a constant up and down.

Trails Trails Trails was the slogan of this marathon in Neustadt a.d.W. While all the other races wanted to challenge the riders with wideforest high ways and want to test the condition of the riders, the guys from Neustadt wanted to test the whole rider with all his offroad-skills. So, you had for miles and miles single-trails only wide as a hand thru the mountains of the palaninate hills,  and these are hills, I can tell you.

Like in the last year I wanted to participate at the Snake-Triathlon at the 14.07.2012. Schlangenbad is just 30km and 300m
of altitude away from my home and so I rode by bike there. At the Snake-Triathlon you´ve to solve 600m of swim,
17km MTB and a 5,5 cross-run. It rained the days befoe and so the course became a really mud and slippery course. Doro Richters

Phew� still possible, under 40minutes.
Again, another run in the evening, normally not my favorite time to run, but anyhow, at the 21.07.2012, I went to Birkesdorf, fort he Isola-bridge run.

VICTORY!!!! City run of Düren 2012
After a long forced break, I was able again to participate at the 27th Sparkassen run over the 10km distance. 6 rounds right
thru the inner town of Düren, even the course got lots of turns, it is a fast course and the organizer said again, that the course is official 10km long.

Robby and Beni: Pirates at the Championchips of Germany  
On Friday morning we started for our trip to Klein Machnow, we started early because we wanted to get there on time for the “free training “ on the course and even though my race was on Sunday, I was really nervous.

Buchholz out of the sight of Heiko and Silke: 
Our first race as a Pirate in our brand new and suitable Pirate-cloth, brought us in a really good mood,
so high on emotion, that my chain broke at the first ascents....
