Wind tunnel testing with Daniela Sämmler

Thu, May 10, 18

As soon as it gets warmer outside, we start the wind tunnel tests with our Pro Team to find the fastest bike-rider set-up for them for their race season.

Patrick Lange's Post Race Thoughts

Wed, Apr 25, 18

"The day after: 3rd place is not what I was hoping for, but the day after the race you can sum it up. All in all, the race unfolded completely as I expected.
