2014 – Aachen

Siegerehrung 2014
Winner ceremony of the 7th German Hitchhiking Championships 2014 in France

»Allez-vous vers Ambleteuse?«

After a placid meeting in Aachen’s Westpark on the first evening, the 7th German Hitchhiking Championships started in front of Aachens town hall on Saturday. Some minutes before the race started the destination was announced to the participants, this time leading to the French Atlantic coast. After the last teams were constituted, all participants had their starting bibs and the last questions were answered, the starting shot sounded around half past 9. More than 40 participants from Germany and The Netherlands/USA started to a camping ground in Ambleteuse to celebrate the winners on Sunday at the sunny coast.
