Ride From Germany to France for 24 Hour Race in Le Mans

Bike Tour Germany will be riding to the 24 Hour Race at Le Mans, France on Thursday, April 15, 2010.

"We will be riding from Munich, and we will be camping right next to the race track," said Joerg Wenzel, the owner of the adventure motorcycle touring company, Bike Tour Germany.

 "Everyone is welcome to join us, either in Munich or somewhere on the road on Thursday the 15th of April. We have a Meet &; Greet in Metz, France for riders coming from northern Germany."

Le Mans 24 Hours for Motorcycles - April 17 - 18, 2010

In keeping with tradition, the 33rd Le Mans 24 Hours for Motorcycles will be the first round of the FIM Endurance World Championship consisting of five races in 2010.

Honda France, which made its return to endurance last year, is out to take its revenge on Yamaha, which can again count on one of the winners of the 2009 World Championship, Gwen Giabbani who has resigned with YART (Yamaha Austria Racing Team). But Suzuki with SERT, winner in 2008, and the Team 18 Sapeurs Pompiers, runner-up in 2009, and Kawasaki don’t see things that way. Completing the programme will be the first round of the 2010 Superside World Championship, and the International Classic Grand Prix (2-stroke motorbikes from the 70s/80s) plus a free concert on Saturday evening on the Bugatti circuit.

Bike Tour Germany is planning to attend these 2010 European events:

May 29 to 31 --     Practice 2010 Tourist Trophy (Isle of Man, UK
June 5 to 11 --       Tourist Trophy Race 2010 - Isle of Man, UK
June 11 to 20 --    Pyrenean Tour, France & Spain
Sept. 7 to 13 --    European Bike Week "Faaker See," Austria

At the moment, Joerg is about to hop a plane to attend the 2010 Daytona Bike Week. It will be a pleasant break from winter in Germany and a chance to ride bikes with friends from California and other parts of the USA. The Daytona Bike Week rally draws 300, 000 to 500,000 rally enthusiasts from all over the world.
