Dutch championship against the wind

We had the Dutch championship tegenwindfietsen (against the wind cycling) last weekend.

8.5km time trial
Only held with headwinds exceeding 7 bft
You have to ride on a standard bike without gears.
Only modification allowed is tire pressure.

For an impression:

Sadly no English subtitles.

I love it!

And proof yet again that, no matter how silly, tongue-in-cheek you make an event, some people will kit up and take it seriously.

:joy: :rofl: :joy:

Proud to be Dutch - that stuff is crazy.

Love this! :rofl:

Is this on the Afsluitdijk?

Doesn’t need subtitles to get the gist. Thanks for sharing.
