- Direction Oberstdorf. A special train waggon for cyclists will take us directly from Mainz to the start.
- Oberstdorf Station. In a moment Florian and me unload or mountain bikes. Hungry we go for the guesthouse ...
- Stillachtal. Just a quick stop to read the map.
- Ascend to the Speicherhütte. The road is steep and well prepared.
- Schrofenpass. Mountain biker on the narrow path to the pass.
- On the ladder. Florian stays unnerved. In a moment he overcomes the famous ladder at the Schrofenpass.
- Done! Not too bad ... The path is much worse in front of the ladder.
- To Freiburger Hütte. First thunderclouds at the horizon. The weather is still calm ...
- Preventive maintenance. A last bike check in front of the Hotel Post in Dalaas before we start for the second stage.
