Luxembourger Wins Office Chair Race (Video)

More than 50 participants competed in the town of Bad König-Zell in Hesse on Saturday at the third German office chair championships, but it was Luxembourger Pierre Feller who took the title and set a new course record.

Feller covered the 200-metre downhill stretch in just 26.95 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 35 kph (22 mph).

The chairs were allowed to be fitted with inline-skate wheels and handles, but no kind of motorized aid was permitted.

The design prize was won by Heiko Winter, also a local resident, who was dressed as a cowboy and had fitted his chair with a horse’s head and a saddle, reports The Local.
