Interview With Matthias Mende - Mad East Challenge (From The Green Hell)
From May, 16th until to May, 18th. 2008 the Mad East Challenge takes place for the fifth time. For the 5th year's celebration of the mountain bike event (which takes place around the saxonian-bohemian border) comes up with a programme, which demands everything of the riders' condition and ability. Over 5,000 meters of altitude difference displayed across a track of all together 180km has to be managed during the three race days. Difficult ascents, technically hard downhill stretches and beautiful trails are awaiting the bikers both sides of the German-Czech border.
A complete interview with one of the main initiators of the race, Matthias Mende, you'll find on following German and Czech websites.
