Christoph Strasser During the first 8 hours of the challenge he rolled 40 kilometers per hour. Although the wind was favorable and did not have to fight against weather inclement, it did have to face the excess of public that crowded on the track to see the Strasser feat live. Some fans even accompanied him with their respective bicycles for several kilometers. "The main problem in the first hours were the thousands of fans there. I'm glad they didn't cause an accident." Strasser had a puncture with his bicycle during the test, although that did not prevent him from slashing the record record on asphalt in 24 hours. "Apart from the puncture, I have not had any other technical or physical problem, although naturally I felt tired and cold at night."
