Office Chair Racing Championship

By Gerard @presurfer
More than 50 people participated in Germany's third annual office chair championships on April 16th, racing each other on a downhill course in the town of Bad Koenig, The contestants were free to adapt their office chairs for race conditions, but were not allowed motors to propel them down the cordoned-off road. Most had mounted inline skater wheels for greater speed.
Racers also wore helmets, knee pads and elbow protectors, as contestants reached speeds of up to 35 kilometers per hour (21.7 mph). Some sat on the chair, others lay on their stomachs. The prize eventually went to Luxembourg native Pierre Feller, who timed in at 26.59 seconds, setting a record.
