Elite handbikers battle it out at Lobbach!

Invacare present at EHC 2014 in Lobbach, Germany

With temperatures reaching almost 30°C on Saturday 9th August, the world’s élite handbikers psyched themselves up for the European Handbike Circuit battle ahead.  The 5,3km long race at Lobbach, Germany, drew an impressive 102 competitors from 12 nations.

The tough circuit took no prisoners and participants faced inclines of up to 7% in the strong heat of the sun.  Hailed as one of the most demanding challenges in the European Handbike Circuit, this race was a pleasure to witness and to be part of.
