Deutschland Tour as a race itself was very successful and very professionally organized in every aspect. Crowed in the cities and suburbs were amazing and very excited to see some of the worlds best riders. People along the roads were very supportive and loved the race and everything around it. We had a chance to be part of the race security in the finishing host cities, and our main job was to protect and inform the riders with some of the most dangerous obstacles in the cities. This was our first competition, where we used 10 Safety Signs in every stage and the outcome was very successful and we did our job as we should. We received very positive feedback from race organizers and a lot of riders. Even this year’s Tour the France winner Geraint Thomas was very satisfied with and gave a very good feedback to race organizers about our work. We are looking forward to be back in Germany next year with more Safety Signs.
