58 competitors hurl down 600ft hill for Germany's 3rd annual office chair race

Tuesday 19 April 2011

A group of 58 men, who apparently like to make their office chairs aerodynamic, launched themselves headlong from a ramp onto a 600ft downhill course, as they took part in the 3rd annual German office chair championship on Saturday.

Armed with helmets, elbow protectors and kneepads, the keen racers reached speeds of 22mph in the 200m race in the central town of Bad Konig, Hesse.

Pierre Feller, from Luxembourg, took the title after completing the run in just 26.95 seconds.

"His lying-down technique was sensational!" the Daily Mail quoted competition organiser Rene Karg as telling www.local.de.

Strict rules are in place for competitors. They are allowed to fit inline skate wheels and handles to their chairs, but no motorised aids are permitted.

Karg added: "We check each chair in advance."

Second and third places were won by Andreas Ripper and Finn-Jan Rucktaschel.

Heiko Winter won the best-designed chair. His effort was fitted with a horse's head and a saddle and he was dressed as a cowboy.
