Red Bull Romaniacs Management team
Bronze Class competitor Rob Chavez about the terrain: “The riding here is 2nd to NONE! You go out here and you see so much beautiful terrain - from the super high mountains, where you are in the clouds, and then you come back down and you are in the trees, in a day you see more riding, then you ever see in most peoples lifetime!”
By signing up, competitors will become aware that they will be pushing themselves to their outer limits, transitioning from “daring to dream” to “living the dream”. Knowing not everybody has the ability to train and accomplish such a feat, affords a sense of identity, respect and accomplishment for all competitors.
Competing in a Red Bull Romaniacs is a life-lasting adventure, something for competitors to tell their grand children about. Some people win it and then bring back their family to win it again: Here is the story of Andreas and Manuel Lettenbichler! It is a true family affair of the Red Bull Romaniacs! Father Andreas had taken the win in 2009, going against Cyril Depres, Chris Birch and Graham Jarvis. In 2019, exactly 10 years after his father, “Mani” followed in his footsteps onto the number one spot on the podium. The 21 year old Bavarian has now become the youngest competitor ever to win the Red Bull Romaniacs Gold class - and he fought hard for it. It was his fifth attempt at the hard enduro rallye. He first appeared in the Romanian forest in 2015, with his father Andreas who was also competing. Completely overwhelmed by the gruelling nature of the race, Mani got hurt and was not able to finish, but promised to come back. The next year, in 2016 he finished 20th and got close to the podium in 2017 in forth place, one hour behind Jarvis. In 2018 Mani went for the win and only missed it in a nail-biting finish 2 minutes behind Wade Young. The finish in 2019 was as close and as breathtaking but this time Mani Lettenbichler came in as winner - with Alfredo Gomez two and half minutes behind him.
Bronze Class Competitor Rob Chavez about the Red Bull Romaniacs:
- “I did the Iron class last year- and I had a great time and I wanted to come back and run Bronze this year”
- “ It makes me young, it makes me feel young! when I sit on the couch, I feel horrible!”
- “I like doing stuff that’s really hard and that not everybody can do. I like to challenge, I need to push myself!”
- “I probably dreamed about the Romaniacs for ten years before I went. I was always trying to get some of my friends to go. Then one year they said, they were all going to go. But nobody went - except for me! I signed up and I went! I was glad for the push (to get here) now I am not afraid!. I like doing stuff that’s really hard and that not everybody can do. I like to challenge, I need to push myself!”
- “Its a challenge. I mean to do everything to get here, to train, and ride and get your work done and still have family time - it is work! But it is passion, you know, to do it - its worth it!”
- “On the first day… I suffered a little bit, in the first few hours, and then I had to remind myself what I was doing and were I was at - and then I had fun with it! And then, once I started having fun with it, the rest of the race was great!” (had fun and not suffered too much)
- “I kind of remember what it was last year - when you come here, you are racing with the best Enduro riders in the world! I t is not like racing at home where we had 10 good riders - there’s hundreds of good riders here! To be able to ride with them is pretty much an honor!” I am glad to be here and I am glad to have the opportunity to do this - I am pretty lucky!”
