Everybody back safely!!!
As the last hobbler has finally made his way home by yesterday (due to sunday´s truck-ban), we can announce:
EVERYBODY BACK SAFELY!!!
YES, the GE-2012 was more exhausting than ever, but (or maybe "because") on the other hand full of intelligence: it showed, that the last years´ ongoing call for longer, harder, sandyer stages can grow silent very quickly as soon as mother nature does her part. As well, the steadily growing trend towards private service-crews takes its toll by demanding easier access to the bivouacs, plus the all-round carefree package, which we still love to keep up, seems to create some kind of unconcern.
Our list of approaches for further optimization is already very detailed, so we can practice what we preach ...
ANYWAY: a great time!!!
We´d like to thank everybody involved for their great work, everybody actually-not-involved for their unselfish support:
- our sponsors, which do enable us to organize such kind of event ...
- the more than beautiful and detailed reports, already existing in the web and still to come on paper ...
- and of course all the fans at home in front of the screen!!!
We have revised the race-magazine 2012 one final time.
And corrected two typing errors in our ranking database, which is now shining correctly.
