Sydor again among the favourites

Posted on Updated on

Alison is legendary among North Shore riders as the finest BC has ever produced.

Little has changed. I created this feature for the Athens Summer Olympics and she is still among the favourites in international competition. She races today in the CRAFT BIKE TRANS GERMANY classic, listed among Pia Sundstedt (FIN) and Daniele Troesch (FRA) as pre-race contenders.

Craft Bike Trans Germany powered by Nissan – June 21st to 27th, 2009

In the third year of the Craft Bike Trans Germany powered by Nissan, a total of 800 mountain bikers including some of the world’s top athletes will once again cross Germany in seven stages from West to East. The updated route leads across the most beautiful Central German climbs. All participants have to conquer 410 miles (660 kilometers) and about 50,196 feet (15,300 meters) of elevation gain in order to take home the event finisher shirts.

The 2009 event will also offer something brand new. For the first time, the stage race from Erbach im Odenwald to Seiffen in the Erz Mountains will be organized in a single starter format and not in teams of two. Also added, a class for teams of four bikers will bring additional tension and excitement to the race.
