VOTEC Endeavor Project athlete Lukas at Unbound

We met up with Lukas to talk about the pitfalls of the race and, above all, the imponderables. About the different phases in a long-distance race and why the preparation and working with the material is so relevant. It was a very mixed experience for Lukas on a demanding track. The day before the race, the route was adjusted again due to severe flooding and the mud that was left behind provided unexpected challenges. But now let’s talk to Lukas Löer about the Unbound.

On the Orbit360 with our Super Orbiter:in Henrike

Henrike won this year’s Super Orbiter:in challenge and with that a brand new VOTEC VRX. We asked her what motivated her to participate in the challenge, why she name her new VRX “Chickpea” and which adventures are waiting for the two of them this year.


Allroad = Allrace? – The VOTEC VRC at The Traka

We’re still super happy with Marion’s victory at The Traka two weeks ago. An incredible start to what will hopefully be an eventful and successful gravel season. After reviewing the race from Marion’s eyes in the last post, we now take a look at her material. After all, she didn’t win The Traka on the VOTEC Gravelbike VRX, but on the AllRoad VRC. Reason enough to take a closer look at the bike and especially Marion’s motivation.


The Traka – Where self-doubts vanish in dense gravel dust

At the end of Labor Day, appropriately enough, she crosses the finish line. Her face is covered in dust sticking to sweat. Blood runs down her arm, a restrained smile. True soccer fans would now shout “this is what winners look like”. Gravel biking however is a bit more reserved. But that’s what she looks like, the winner of The Traka – Marion Dziwnik.
