At the start of September, X-BIONIC athlete Bernhard Steinberger crowned his career with the European championship title in ultracycling: he won one of the most difficult solo marathon races in the world, the Race Around Ireland (RAI). The Upper Palatinate native needed fewer than 100 hours for the 2150-kilometre race, making it a new German record at the same time. The RAI is among the hardest races in the ultracycling scene and, this year, was held for the seventh time. Participants cycle around the island non-stop – even breaks are counted against their overall time. So the top riders try to stop as little as possible, reducing sleep to a minimum. Bernhard only slept for 93 minutes in this year’s competition, bringing him to an early victory. The ultracycling specialist tells us his experience of the race in the interview below – have fun reading it! How did you feel ...

On the last weekend of September we organized our first TeamRide with the new X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Biking Wear. The weather was perfect and very sunny, everybody was excited and happy about the upcoming event. We met in the morning here at our headquarter in Wollerau – about 25 TeamRider joined us. Before we started the ride, we had a nice breakfast and the participants got some interesting insights to our development department and products. After this we went on the 65 kilometers long ride along the Zurichsee. We returned from the easy tour around 1 pm and enjoyed our reward: A delicious pizza. Mastermind Prof. Lambertz had a final speech to our guests and explained the innovative technologies we use for our products. The day was a big success and we are already planning the next event, stay tuned! ...

Last Saturday we opened the cycling season with the first TeamRide in 2014. Although the weather wasn´t that perfect we had a nice ride. The Swiss cycling legend Tony Rominger came with us and was a great inspiration for all of us. Some guests came specially from Bern to join our ride, but most of the riders were from the closer region around Wollerau. The next TeamRide will be on Saturday 3th May and will start at the X-BIONIC® headquarter as usual. Get the latest updates for our next event at www.facebook.com/xbionic.int/events.

The last TeamRide of 2013 is over: a small group of X-BIONIC® fans met at our headquarter in Wollerau. After a short meet and great and an introduction to our new products every TeamRider got his own The Trick® test set. The weather conditions became better and better during the ride. Ahead of the group was Swissman and Norseman winner Markus Stierli who gave us some insights to his great races and the training for these two outstanding Ironmans. After 30 kilometers we had a short break for a hot coffee/tea/chocolate. The tour lead over a few small mountains and we finally crossed the Seedamm near Rapperswill over the Lake of Zurich. We arrived again in Wollerau and had a final snack. The next ride will be in Spring 2014, but perhaps we will organise a Winter edition.
