Previous Badwater Racing Experience: 2001 Badwater Race, in 41:39:35, 15. Place
2002 Badwater Race, in 48:44:07, 28. Place
This was a very special run, because my friend Uli and me ran before the official Badwater Start to the summit of Mt. Whitney and down to Badwater and after this we ran the official race. They called it: Badwater 300
Previous Badwater Crewing Experience: 2000 Badwater Race, I broke down at Mushroom Rock (Km20), after that I was the pacer and crew member of Joey Kelly and Uli Weber
Previous Badwater Clinic Experience: I'm sorry, no Badwater Clinic, the way from Germany is too long.(Greetings to Ben and Denise, our wonderful friends!)

My Weirdest Experience:

2002 Badwater 300, this was a very great adventure. First the run up to the summit of Mt. Whitney, snow, cold air, thin air, and then down into the heat of Death Valley. Nights without sleep, friendly people who pass our way, and last but not least a very competent crew

WhyI Run Ultras:

Why I want a slot on the start line of the 2003 Badwater Ultramarathon:

I come to Death Valley since three years. I love the wonderful people there. And I love the desert. Death Valley is a beautiful place to relax. And: I think, I've caught a Badwater virus!
