Stijn van de Maele (Belgium) 3 time world champion during HPV World Championships in Mannheim (Germany)

June 19th, 2017To the top
Stijn did it again!!

With only an upgraded rear wheel Stijn used his very standard M5 Carbon High Racer to prove that this bike works as well for commuting, shopping, vacation tours as winning world titles on speed championships....

With the highest excuses to his family for being out so many hours on training sessions

But the reults are stunning of course despite the fact that Stijn reaches 40 years of age. No trace of slowing down so far:

-1st place at the 333 meter sprint
-1st place at the kilometer standing start
-1st place at the 3 hours race

The climbing time trial was deleted because of an approaching thunderstorm while riding second place.



 

Historic victory M5 recumbent in mountain stage Viking Tour Norway amongst 300 road bikes

July 22nd, 2014To the top
Historic victory M5 recumbent in mountain stage Viking Tour Norway amongst 300 road bikesOn the third day of the Viking Tour Herke Wendt (40), one of the members of the M5 Team, won a 109 km mountain stage with uphill finishing. Herke finished a full three minutes ahead of the front group. He averaged at 35 km/h, which includes the mandatory first 12 kilometres at low speed while passing a tunnel with escort. Herke's victory is extra special when considering he did the full distance solo, while the group keeps changing the front man. All members of the M5 Team ride solo. The field of participants consists of very strong athletes. Among them is the National Triathlon Team of Norway.

Today another mountainous leg which started and ended with 550 metres of ascending. Again Herke was fastest among the recumbent riders, but didn't manage to overtake the leading group this time.

The atmosphere during the Viking Tour is very good. We had a warm welcome by the organisation board and the other participants and there's a lot of amazement about the accomplishments of the recumbent in these mountainous circumstances. Lengthy ascends are standard, but that doesn't pose any limitations. Descending is simply spectacular: Bram reached almost 94 km/h today. Obviously, every leg is hard work, especially in the current tropical conditions. But we're rewarded with a stunning landscape: mountains, glaciers, snow, forests, fjords, a more marvellous stage is hardly imaginable
