Oberstdorf Marathon

In late September there is mostly no  weather anymore for Marathons, but Oberstdorf is sometimes perfect to ride a final last time on trails up to 2000m altitude. Once we had snow, but this year we had absolutely great conditions.

Well, to make  long 5 hours short, it worked fine for me, a first time under 5 hours for the big round and a happy face after the race (even if I suffered badly again at the final loooong climb). A bit sad is the rather unfriendly getting surrounding in the town. They close the race circuit 5min after start and also quite early after the race. No beer and tables at the park anymore etc… Well, the course is still nice to ride that late in the year.
