The 31st edition of the legendary Challenge Roth (GER) last Sunday was another successful competition for X-BIONIC® Athlete Timo Bracht. He finished 31 seconds behind his last years victory time in 7:56:31h – only 5 minutes behind winner Nils Frommhold who showed an outstanding bike performance and was unbeatable this year.
The race started early in the morning at 6:30 am. Timo was in the leading swim group and started very fast on the bike. During the cycling, the later winner showed an extraordinary performance with one of the best long distance bike times ever and Timo lost about 11 minutes to him.
But Timo did not give up the fight and got 6 minutes back during the final run. Timo ran the fastest marathon but was not able to close the gap to the leader. Although he could not defend his title, Timo was happy with his race performance: “Today I had a very good race, but Nils showed a better performance that I could not beat this year” mentioned Timo after the race.
Timo’s team-mate Horst Reichel who started for the very first time in Roth had a bad day. Due to health problems he could not eat anything during the race and kept far behind his own expectations. But he said that he will return to Roth and is motivated for his comeback next year.
We wish both athletes to recover well after this hard competition – have a good preparation time for the next events!

Almost two weeks ago X-BIONIC® was part of the Super Trofeo race series again, this time in Paul Ricard/France. Our pilot and X-BIONIC® athlete Cédric Leimer participated there with his team and won the AM class that weekend. His teammate Laurent Jenny said to Lamborghini Squadra Corse after the victory:
Leimer made a brilliant start climbing up to P7. He still managed to keep a considerable pace even after the Safety Car. Then it was my turn and all went well. I would like to thank once more my team and my sponsor.
The next race event of the European Super Trofeo series will be from Wednesday, July 22nd to Sunday, July 26th. We wish our team all the best for the races!

Last month we organized the 5th X-PerienceDay this year here in Wollerau, our guests came from Germany, Switzerland and Austria to test the latest products. After a short meet and greet, we started the event with an introduction to the company and the development department showed some of the latest products and technologies:
After this “theoretical” part, the participants received their test equipment. The weather was perfect for the test event and we were looking forward to enjoying a perfect day. We prepared two different courses for running and cycling. The runners tested THE TRICK® shirts and pants and ran around a small sea next to our company. There we prepared a short uphill challenge where they could earn a Patriot Swiss Wallaby. Everyone who completed it, received the reward directly:
