This crazy chair race is holding in Germany every year. All competitors are racing downhill through the 170m course.

Racing in pairs and equipped with helmets and kneepads, the 58 participants then launch themselves onto the course head-first from a ramp.This year’s racers mainly came from areas around Cologne, Stuttgart and Luxembourg, with the second and third places won by local speed demons Andreas Ripper and Finn-Jan Rucktäschel.before pointing out the strict regulations in place for the third championship of its kind: the chairs are allowed to be fitted with inline-skate wheels and handles, but no kind of motorized aid is permitted.
