Our course managers: Eva Kruse and Heiko Janik

Eva Kruse and Heiko Janik are tinkering the track again.

The two bike addicts live in Brachttal, between the Rhön, Vogelsberg and Spessart mountains. And when you’re not working, they’re in the saddle. Eva regularly commutes during the week between her second home in her hometown of Essen and her job in Neuss, easily covering 80 kilometers a day.

Heiko comes from Binz on the island of Rügen. He spent his school years in the GDR as a racing cyclist at the sports boarding school in Gera. His many contacts in the German professional scene date from this time. It’s quite possible that one or the other old buddy will be at the start with us in September. And he also met his Eva, how could it be otherwise, on the bike.

By the way, we don’t throw them in at the deep end: Eva organizes the legendary Kettwiger Hügeltour for her club, the RSC Essen-Kettwig, the “RTF with the most altitude meters in the Pott”, as she tells us. Around 800 participants venture out onto the course every year. Together, Eva and Heiko also manage road bike weekends and multi-day tours for their club – so they both know what they’re talking about.

Their plan for the new route from Dortmund to the Kitzbühel Alps: even more scenery, even more small roads away from the hustle and bustle, and even more variety. And of course, the tour should be challenging again. The route is roughly set, but Eva and Heiko will still be on the road a lot before everything is ready. “I’m excited to get started,” Eva says.

How a RUSH ideally works was experienced first-hand by our track bosses during their first participation in the DeutschlandRUSH. Eva remembers the days in the team fondly: “I was just totally happy to have made it. That’s quite an achievement and I pushed myself to my limits several times,” she recalls. She and Heiko had already done a lot, from marathons, bike trips, races, RTF and stage rides. But the RUSH, she says, was “the most beautiful thing we have experienced on the bike so far. Because of the route and the sporting challenge. But above all because of the atmosphere in the team. It was also simply great from a human point of view.
