The Transcontinental TCR09

On 23.07. the TCR09 started in Geraardsbergen (B).

A special race, non-supported, across Europe, from Belgium to Greece.

The strict rules, the length and the profile of the course, presented me with completely new challenges. Did I reach the finish in Thessaloniki? What happened on such a long journey, how I managed, or did not manage, crises and problems, and what solutions I came up with? You find the answers in my blog articles (linked below).

I have linked a report of the Aachener Zeitung here (only in German). In it you will find some background information, which I don’t want to mention here again.

Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed for me!

Thanks for your donations and support


With Miles4Malabon I support 125 preschool children in the Philippines to enable them to attend elementary school.

All donations go first to the project group Malabon e.V., which has the direct contact to Malabon and allocates the money to the corresponding project.

Betterplace is a non-profit organization that takes care of all payment transactions, including the issuing of donation receipts. The money goes directly to the respective non-profit organization, in this case to the project group Malabon e.V. A direct transfer to me is not possible, respectively not wanted, that would only mean unnecessary effort for me, and also transparency, as provided by betterplace, would not be manageable for me as a private person. I prefer to spend my time on the bike to motivate more people to donate.

Currently, payments via PayPal, direct debit, credit card, paydirect or bank transfer are possible through betterplace.

Betterplace transfers the funds directly to the Malabon e.V. project group. In return, proof must be provided that the funds have been used for the appropriate purpose. In addition, I also receive regular information about the 125 preschool children who are supported by the program.

Every donor receives a donation receipt from betterplace in February of the following year for all donations made in the previous year.

Of course you can also support me in other ways. Sometimes it needs some help with the organization, or just accompaniment on long training rides. Sharing these activities and actions in the social media, and perhaps providing me with contacts to generate attention in these media, is also a help.

A direct sponsorship via Miles4Malabon is not possible. If you would like to donate on a long-term and regular basis, you can do so with the Malabon project group as a so-called sponsor. This is especially interesting for companies.

The simplest possibility is that of a direct donation. It is also possible to put your company logo or name on my jersey, which I wear during training and events. For this, however, I ask in advance for direct contact. For other ideas please also just contact me.

No! No donations are used to finance the activities, i.e. entry fees, fees, transport, accommodation, food, etc., and for the purchase of my equipment. I am very happy to pay for that out of my own pocket. Should there be any interest in sponsoring, in whatever form, please contact me.
