For the 19th edition from 21st of September to 23rd of September 2018, amateur cyclists from all over Europe and almost all other continents of the world will meet in the Black Forest. In 2017, the RiderMan reached a new record attendance with riders from 30 different nations. And with this year’s tailwind due in some extra ordinary positive feedback from our riders, the forecasts for the next edition in September 2018 are once again under a very good star. The brothers Kai and Rik Sauser from the organizing company Sauser Event GmbH remain true to their proven concept, the three day stage race with daily and overall classements. On Friday and Sunday also daily starts are possible. As in previous years, the result of the overall ranking once again entered the classement of the German Cycling Cup, Germany’s largest amateur cycling series with around 25,000 starters at a total of nine events throughout Germany.
The already traditional and well-established start of the RiderMan is once again the individual time trial over 16 kilometers and 200 meters of altitude on undulating terrain of Bad Dürrheim. The second stage takes the participants on the proven hilly and varied route with about 110 kilometers through the Black Forest. Finally, on Sunday, it’s over 87 kilometers with a trip through the beautiful Wutachschlucht. “We will mainly remain true to the routes. But optimizations and changes are necessary again and again, partly due to temporary construction sites that require redesigning of the stages. But the core of all routes through the beautiful Black Forest remains unchanged, “explains Rik Sauser. The RiderMan enjoys meanwhile an excellent reputation among the amateur athletes, provides also international riders for enthusiasm and develops more and more to the hip end weekend at the end of the cycling season. The corresponding side events with the annually growing Bike-Expo, the cult after-race-parties including live music as well as the Derny race of the professional cyclists, which was held for the first time in 2017, also contributes to this.
The registration for the 19th RiderMan in Bad Dürrheim is now online and available at www.riderman.de. And those who register shortly before Christmas until 20th of December 2017 can benefit from cheaper early bird prices.
