Out of seven editions of Red Bull Ragnarok, 2017 really turned out to be a battle to remember. Contestants had to complete five laps in five hours, meaning the total distance was 130 kilometers – the longest course in the history of the event. Luckily the weather gods kept that in mind for the day, providing what the veterans describes as the best wind conditions ever, reaching almost 44 knots. Congratulations to all Nobile Team riders: 6th – Fly Fisch (AUT), 8th – Martins Sprogis (LAT), 11th – Artem Garashchenko (RUS) and unlucky Christian Labbe who broke bar and walk 6km for another one to finish the race.
