On Friday (27 August) the Entega Grand Prix took place. A bicycle race which was organised and sponsord by the Hessian electric utility.
The distance was 78km on a round cours which was 1,3 km. The cyclist had to make it 60 times.
In the End the winner was Jan Ulrich.
It was exciting to watch! Amazing how fast the cyclist were ...
This race will also take place next year!
The lake is not a natural one. I don't know exactly when it was established. But it is said that during highway constrution works much sand was needed and that's how the hole came. Now it is a place where people come to have a walk, go jogging or biking. It is just a place where you can relax. Some people even come for fishing but I hardly can imagine that there are fishes inside the lake. There is also a sailing club. But the conditions for sailing aren't the best. My brothers learnt sailing on the small lake and became very good because they joined many regattas (for example Kieler Woche). My starts with sailing failed, also my brothers weren't that patiented with me to explain how it works ... I really regret it!!!
