PHOTO- & VIDEO-REPORT: INTERNATIONAL BIKE RACE

For local junior racer Felix Galle it was the best he could achieve on that day. Third best biker at his club’s home race “Rund um Spich” – in the class of the under 19 years old. “Today there were no team mates racing with me here,” says Galle who only got beaten by two racers from a Düsseldorf team.

Galle’s club “RV Blitz Spich” is looking back on a tradition of more than 100 years. More than thirty years the club is hosting its annual race “Rund um Spich.” An international event for amateur racers of all ages.
